CHOSEN God refers to His people as “MY CHOSEN PEOPLE” [Is 65:9 NI] which includes all the children of Israel. In addition to people being chosen as a group, God chose specific people like Moses to serve Him in special ways. King David knew "The Lord chose me" [2Sa 6:21 IC]. Jesus, who said what God told Him to "SAY"  [Jn 12:49], told His apprentices "YOU DID NOT CHOOSE ME, BUT I CHOSE YOU AND APPOINTED YOU SO THAT YOU MIGHT GO AND BEAR FRUIT—FRUIT THAT WILL LAST" [Jn 15:16 NI]. Today, God is still choosing people to serve Him. When we pray for God's chosen people, we are praying for people who were born chosen, the Jews, and we are praying for people God has chosen today to serve Him. Yes, some people who are "serving God" are self serving and self chosen and are not producing "FRUIT THAT WILL LAST". Also not everyone called to serve God is chosen by God to produce "FRUIT THAT WILL LAST". Remember Jesus tells us “MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW CHOSEN” [Mt  20:16 NKJ].  God can reveal to you if you are chosen by Him. Are you chosen? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
