Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
…knowing, beloved brethren, your election by God. – 1 Thess 1:4
Paul was giving the early church two important reminders: 1) they were loved by God, and 2) they were chosen. These reminders are vital for the church today.
You are loved. God loves you more than you can ever imagine! He sent His Only Son Jesus to die on the Cross so you could be free from sin, guilt, and shame. When You understand just how much God loves you, it will be easy to go out and love others.
You are chosen. God has His hand on you for something special. He designed your life for a purpose. God does not make mistakes, and you are not an accident! You are alive to do something special for God’s Kingdom that no other man or woman can do.
You are loved. You are chosen! Live accordingly.
Father, thank You for loving me more than I can ever imagine. Thank You for choosing me for something unique and special. Help me never to forget that I am chosen, and I am loved, in Jesus’ name!
