Chosen and Called

RG AUDIO 121611Matthew 12:15-21

“You did not choose me, but I chose you” (John 15:16). God has chosen you. What a great truth and honor! Each of us has been handpicked by God even before our existence on earth. Before we were born God had a plan and a purpose for us.

Isaiah 42 prophesies about the Messiah and his role as God’s chosen servant. He would come with humility, as the Son of Man, to fulfill God’s given purpose in life. His sacrificial service brings victory, hope, love, and justice to the people. Jesus is God’s chosen servant, and this was his destined service.

What are our identity and destiny in life? How do they define us?

God has chosen us, and God has a plan for us. “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jer. 29:11).
