We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. II Thessalonians 2:13
There are many things for which I am thankful, but this one rises to the top – God CHOSE me. He chose to love me. He chose to send Jesus to save me. He chose me to be part of his family. What brings me to my knees is I know I do not deserve to have been chosen. He has chosen to love you as well. For this, may we be eternally grateful. Have a GREAT day!
