This Day in History: 0000-01-25

January 25 – Galatians 1:15-16 

But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by His marvelous grace. Then it pleased Him to reveal His Son to me so that I would proclaim the Good News about Jesus to the Gentiles. 

My friend, you were created by God with intention and for a purpose! If you are a believer, then even before you were born God chose YOU! There have been billions of people who have walked this planet and only a small fraction of them have come to the saving grace of Jesus Christ – and yet, YOU are one of them!  

No matter what is going on around you, surely there is hope in that truth! Surely it matters more that the mighty, all-powerful, perfect Creator of all things chose you than it does that some sinful, powerless human rejected you? Surely it means more to know that providing a way for you to have a deep and intimate relationship with Him brings great pleasure to the heart of the King of kings and Lord of lords than it does that some broken person has thrown away the opportunity to experience intimacy with you? 

It surely does! And since that is true, may we begin to live out our purpose and proclaim the Good News about Jesus everywhere we go! It is worth shouting from every rooftop! May our lives be an offering of praise!
