His First Choice

~ By Max Lucado

"You are God's child. He saw you, picked you, and placed you! Jesus said, 'You did not choose me. I chose you!.' You are God's child! Replacement or fill-in? Hardly. You are His first choice. The choice wasn't obligatory, required, compulsory, forced, or compelled. He selected you because He wanted to. You are His open, willful, voluntary choice. He walked onto the auction block where you stood, and He proclaimed, 'This child is mine.'

"I Peter 1:19 says, He bought you 'with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot'. You are His child forever. Your struggles will not last forever---but you will. The promise is in 2 Timothy 2:12. 'If we endure, we shall also reign with Him.' Believe it........clutch on the interior of your heart!

"You are God's child!"
