It doesn’t matter what your employer said, what your parents may have said, or what your friends said--God says that as a follower, you’re chosen. You’re loved just as you are and your identity is complete in that. You can’t earn it, there’s nothing you can do to achieve it. You’re chosen. You’re also a priest. When you get up in the morning and you look at yourself in the mirror with disheveled hair and morning breathe, you say to yourself, “I’m chosen; I’m a royal priest, and I’m part of a community in the church.” That’s who God says we are. The question isn’t, do you feel chosen? The question is, do you believe God when He says you’re chosen? God loves to turn nobodies into somebodies. Embrace Your Identity.
