|“This man is the instrument I have chosen.” —Acts 9:15|
St. Paul was chosen to:
You too are chosen by God in many of the same ways that Paul was, but also in certain unique ways. God tells you: “It was not you who chose Me, it was I Who chose you to go forth and bear fruit” (Jn 15:16). You are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people He claims for His own” (1 Pt 2:9). “Because you are God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with heartfelt mercy, with kindness, humility, meekness, and patience” (Col 3:12).
You are a chosen child of God. You are blessed. Your life is very important. You are always loved. You are chosen.
|Prayer: Father, may we see many miraculous conversions today.|
|Promise: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the good news to all creation. The man who believes in it and accepts baptism will be saved; the man who refuses to believe in it will be condemned.” —Mk 16:15-16|
|Praise: Jesus temporarily blinded St. Paul to enable him to open the eyes of the Gentiles and turn them from darkness to light, from Satan to God, obtaining forgiveness of their sins (see Acts 26:16-18).|
