“I have chosen the way of truth” (Ps. 119:30). “For I have chosen thy precepts” (Ps. 119:173). “For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matt. 22:14). The gospel invitation goes out to all who will listen, but all do not believe. Among those who hear are those who respond in genuine faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. They are the people referred to by Peter, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar [special] people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” (I Pet. 2:9). True believers are a very special people for God. John refers to them when he writes of the Lamb, “For he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful” (Rev. 17:14).Golden Thought True believers are chosen by God.
