Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – October 26, 2014
For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession. Deuteronomy 14:2
You matter. You matter because you are chosen by the Lord—you are His treasured possession. Jesus wants you to be with Him like a coach who recruits athletes; He has picked you to be on His team. He calls the plays and He expects you to excel in the position best suited for your skills, gifts, and experiences. You matter most to the Lord of Hosts. Since Jesus Christ thinks the world of you, He laid down His life for the world on your behalf. You have been given much in your faith journey, so God expects much. Thus, you matter in helping others know they matter.
“The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life” (Job 33:4).
