Current Prayer Requests
Moses told the Israelites, "The Lord did not set His love on you...because you were more in number..., but because the Lord loves you, because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers..." (Deuteronomy 7:7-8). God did not choose the Jews because of who they were but because of who He is.
The same is true of God's choosing believers. He chooses solely on the basis of His divine will, purpose, and love...It's all of God.
"He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love."
Happy Monday...Have a great week! God bless!
