Why Did God Choose Me?

John MacArthur is doing a series on the Doctrine of Election right now on his radio show. His sermons have forced me to consider this wonderful truth that people hesitate to talk about because of its harshness... God CHOSE me! Just because He wanted to. Not because of anything I did or ever could do. He chose me before the creation of the world, that I would choose Him and desire to live my life for Him. This is such a humbling truth, and all I can do is thank Him and praise Him for choosing me.

Have you ever considered what eternity is? How long is it? Can you explain it? Absolutely NOT! In fact, I get a little nauseated trying to comprehend what eternity is. I feel the same way with election. It is uncomprehensible! Why did God choose me?

Praise the Lord

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ in accordance with his pleasure and will--to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves." Ephesians 1:3-6
