“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “and my servant who I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the Lord and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—I, and not some foreign god among you.”
“You are my witnesses”, declares the Lord, “that I am God.”
We are chosen by God to know and believe Him so that we can be His witnesses and servants.
He chooses believers because He loves others! Amazing! His goal is always others.
He wants us to tell and show others that He is God!! Through speech and writing and actions.
Yes, God loves me, but He loves others just as much.
To be chosen by God means that God plans to reveal something about Himself and His love through our life. To be chosen by God means that God loves others. (Stonecroft Genesis study guide)
Can we grasp that? Can we see how intertwined our witness and service is to why we are believers?
So, find every way you can to know him more and yes, believe Him more.
What are some ways? Prayer, Bible study, discussion with other ‘believers’, books written by other ‘believers’.
