God Chose You for His Family

“For it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again so that we are now members of God’s own family.” (1 Peter 1:3 TLB)

God says your salvation is no accident. He chose you long before you chose him. He took the initiative. The Bible says in 1 Peter 1:2, “You were chosen according to the purpose of God” (TEV).

Why would God choose you or me to be a part of his family? Because he is a God of love. He is a God of grace. The more you understand grace, the more you’re going to be amazed by it. God chose you. Did you deserve it? Not a chance. Do you deserve to go to Heaven? No way! Are you good enough to be in God’s family? No. He just chose you. And that’s good news!

On what basis did he choose you? “For it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again so that we are now members of God’s own family” (1 Peter 1:3 TLB).

God chose you based on his mercy, not your performance. You’ll never earn it. You’ll never deserve it. You couldn’t work hard enough for it. You couldn’t be perfect enough. It’s only because of God’s grace and mercy that the Creator of the universe says, “I want you in my family.”

If that doesn’t encourage you, you’d better check your pulse.
