I read this verse today - "but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God." 1 Corinthians 1:24. It made me think of Matthew 22:14 "For many are called, but few are chosen".
The Bible speaks many times of those who are called. God calls each of us. We are chosen when we make the commitment to live our lives for Him. I thought to myself - do I live like I am chosen? I had to admit, I do not. If I truly always remembered that the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe chose me, I think I would do a better job. I pray today that God gives me and you, the motivation and strength to to live our lives as His chosen one.
