The Blog Name

Okay, I felt bad for not telling you more of the why I chose this name thing-so here are some of the verses and reasons I have:)

Chosen and Precious

Psalm 33:12:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!

(1 Peter 2:9) 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. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
11Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. 12 Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.

Ephesians 1:2-4:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
4just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him In love

2 Thessalonians 2:13
13 -14Meanwhile, we've got our hands full continually thanking God for you, our good friends—so loved by God! God picked you out as his from the very start. Think of it: included in God's original plan of salvation by the bond of faith in the living truth. This is the life of the Spirit he invited you to through the Message we delivered, in which you get in on the glory of our Master, Jesus Christ.

John 15:19:19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.


Deuteronomy 7:6:
6"For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.

Zechariah 9:16:
16On that day the LORD their God will save them, as the flock of his people;for like the jewels of a crown they shall shine on his land.

Malachi 3:17:"They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.

7But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.

Scriptures really say more than I ever could. Let God speak and all creation bow in humble silence to His awesome wonder!
