Then a voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One. Listen to him!” – Luke 9:35

What affection the Father has for the Son! He breaks out from heaven a number of times because He can’t contain His love or boasting on His Son. The Father calls the son “MY CHOSEN ONE.”

Did you know that in the Bible, we are called, “CHOSEN”? According to Peter, we are a chosen generation and a royal priesthood.

The word chosen depicts something special, hand-picked. We don’t often live like we are “CHOSEN.” We too often live according to what we feel, rather than according to the truth of what Christ has done in us and for us. We are His own. We were bought with a great price. We have been redeemed and given great value.

Jesus knew who He was, and that is how He lived his life. Do you feel chosen today? Do you feel special? It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel that way. If you are a child of the King then you ARE chosen, special, redeemed, forgiven, and you are qualified to share in the inheritance of the saints.
