“For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.”
Romans 8:29-30 NLT
God, in His foreknowledge, has chosen those who are His children. He loves all people and wants all people to come to know Him, but He knows that not all will accept Him. God wants those who are His to become like His Son Jesus. The greatest experience of life is to know the One True God and become like Him in our ways. I'm not suggesting that we become God or gods. We are His creation, not the creator. However, He has made us to know Him and demonstrate His character. When we portray Him in our conduct, we are declaring His person to the world. We need to let His glory shine through us! Let's represent Him well!
