Chosen People Choose Life

Deuteronomy 30:11-20 CHOSEN PEOPLE CHOOSE LIFE The Chosen It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all

peoples, but it is because the LORD loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the LORD has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Deuteronomy 7:7-8 (ESV) Old Testament People

Ive done this! Ive chosen you and you had nothing to do with it. Not chosen because they were special Special because they were chosen

New Testament People But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)

Chosen People Chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world Chosen in Baptism On your way to heavenly glory

The Choice to Trust in God Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.

Hebrews 2:14-15 (ESV) so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. Hebrews 2:9b (ESV) Choose Life For this commandment that I command you today is not too hard for you, neither is it far off. It is

not in heaven Neither is it beyond the sea But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it. Deuteronomy 30:11-14 (ESV) Trust God Everyday Life
