Biblical Explanation for Chosen

We all have the desire to be chosen—to belong. Well, there is good news! We are chosen by God! (I Peter 2:4, NIV)

He (God) chose us in Him long before the creation of the earth.
(Ephesians 1:3a)

In Him (Christ) we have redemption through His blood. (Ephesians 1:6b)

Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 1:13b)

Who are those chosen ones? He (Christ) purchased men for God from every tribe, language, people, and nation. (Revelation 5:9b)

Since God has shown us mercy, met our needs, In Him we were also chosen . . . in order that we might be for the praise of His glory!
(Ephesians 1:11b)

Lyrics

Chosen

Written By: Allison Gilliam

CHORUS
Chosen, we were chosen before there was heav’n and earth,
Known by the Father long before our birth,
Loved by His Son whose death gave us worth;
Now, through His Spirit, we are chosen by God.

VERSE
People of His Covenant, people of His Word, people of all races and all creeds,
People who will follow the example of His Son,
people who throughout the ages still need Him!

CHORUS

VERSE
God has shown us mercy, God has met our needs,
God has always heard us when we cry;
God wants all our praises even in the darkest night,
God wants all our lives to praise His name and testify—
Let us praise and testify!

CHORUS

TAG
Loved by His Son whose death gave us worth;
Now, through His Spirit, we are chosen by God.
Chosen, chosen, chosen, chosen!
