“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
The Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit was relentless in finding you and searching for you in the lonely wilderness of this current world. We wondered around aimlessly in life feeling so alone and afraid of the unknowns that we felt we had no purpose. We tried program after program, fad after fad, chased after this or after that, but in the end found nothing but our lost and confused selves each time. Instead of finding purpose, we became more lost than ever. In that moment when we were at our weakest, the strength and relentlessness of the Lord found us in a pool of our own tears of confusion and knocked upon the door of our hearts. The Lord chose us in that moment. We chose to open the door of our hearts to let Jesus Christ into our hearts and lives. The moment we said yes to the choosing of Jesus Christ, we became God’s Chosen.
The word “chosen” is the past participle of the word “choose.” The word “choose” is a verb and by definition it means to pick out or select (someone or something) as being the best or most appropriate of two or more alternatives. Often times we use the phrase we found Jesus, but the truth of the matter is, the Lord found us. The Lord Jesus Christ chose you out of a great multitude of human souls on this planet to carry out a specific function and a specific task that He has personally designed for you. Jesus has ordained you for a mighty purpose to bring glory to the Kingdom of God and to bear the fruits of righteousness in your own heart and life. We find our purpose only in Jesus Christ and in Christ alone.
What is your purpose? The Lord has a purpose chosen specifically for you. It is yours for the asking, but it is you that has to ask. He may reveal to you in the quiet closet of prayer, through His Word, or maybe through one of His other chosen Disciples. We desire His Purpose, but the question remains, are you ready to receive His Purpose for your life ? Are you willing to forsake all to carry forth that Ordained Purpose the Lord has waiting for you? Be ready, be willing; God chose you!
