First Round Pick

Ephesians 1:3"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight"

Think about this today: God CHOSE YOU! You have been marked for blessing and favor from the Lord. You have been identified as having incredible potential for success. You have been hand-picked by Almighty God!

As a kid I remember neighborhood ball games where there would be several of us getting ready to play. There were always a couple of captains and then the picking of teams began. I can recall today just how great it felt to be picked first and how discouraging it was to be picked last. If I wasn't chosen right away I would feel like my talent didn't matter and that I was just taking up space. Yet every time that I was selected first it was like going in the first round of the NFL Draft!

The good news for YOU is that you are always a first round draft pick for God. He CHOSE you before the creation of the world to live a holy and blameless life. Did you catch that? BEFORE the creation of the world...talk about first round pick! You were picked to be a winner! So are you living up to the "calling" that is upon you? God did His part, are you doing yours? You've been blessed and you have been chosen...now go live life to its fullest!
