7/29/16 The People We Reject Are The Ones God Chooses

“You have been chosen out of the world by God Himself.  Very few wise or strong or aristocratic people are called by God.  Instead, He chooses what the world deems foolish to admonish those who think themselves wise and what the world deems weak to admonish those who think themselves strong.  He chooses those who are hated and looked down upon by the eyes of the world, using what most people would consider nothing to take down the true nothings that men have made important for themselves.  God does not want people to boast of who they are or what they do in and of themselves.  He wants them to see that they need a Savior, and without Him they are and they have nothing.  God gave us Jesus to teach us His wisdom, to reveal Himself to us, and to pay the penalty for every sin in every life for every person who will believe in Him and put their trust in Him to save them.  And now you live in Him, and, as Jeremiah has written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.’”
