When Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, those who believed the good report entered the promised land while those who believed the evil report died in the wilderness. What can we learn from it?
March 27, 2018 – Matthew 22:14
For many are called, but few are chosen.
– Matthew 22:14
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
This verse comes from the parable of the wedding banquet. The Lordsaid those in the field and do business were called, but were not chosen. While those on the street accepted the calling, few of them are chosen. God is righteous toward every person, and gives them the chance to accept His work. We are all God’s followers, but whether we can follow to the end and be gained by God and become the chosen ones concerns our personal pursuits.
Just assay, “All men live in the midst of corruption and under the hand of the evil one, so not many of those who follow Me actually long for the truth. That is to say, most do not worship Me with a true heart or with the truth, but rather try to obtain My trust through corruption, rebellion, and deceitful measures. It is for this reason that I say, ‘Many are called, but few are chosen.’ All those called are deeply corrupted and they all live in the same age, but those who are chosen are only that group who believe in and acknowledge the truth, and who practice the truth. These men are merely a very small part of the whole, and from among these men I shall receive more glory. Measured against these words, do you know if you are among the chosen? What will your end be like?”
From God’s words we can understand that in God’s eyes, each of us is deeply corrupted and does not love the truth. Then what kind of people can be chosen? Only those who love and long for the truth, and practice the truth after understanding them can enter into God’s kingdom. They are those who are chosen by God.
