It is a great irony that man who does not know, love, or fear God tries to appease Him by deceitful acts of worship, while enslaved to the deceptions of false religion. At the same time that men try foolishly to placate God by wrong choices, God chooses those upon whom He will set His love and divine favor, apart from anything done by sinful men.

The above scripture verse declares that God chose us, and that He did so “in” Jesus Christ. The Christian’s attitude and actions are not the focus of the verse or the chapter for that matter, but God’s choice in Christ. Christ makes men holy by their position in Him. Could there be a more uplifting, joy inducing truth than the truth that all work to appease God is pointless because God has already chosen us before the world was created that we should stand before Him holy and without blame?

The songwriter Aurora states this truth so well,

My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in Heaven, He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart

One with Himself I cannot die
My soul is purchased with His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God

About Joe Durso

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
