Congratulations on your election

12 May 2014, 10:04
In an earthly election system, a person seeking to be voted in office has to project himself favourably in the mind of the electorate. His policies have to be sound in order to turn things around. With much debate, persuasion and travelling, he labours to make his election sure through the ballot box.  Moreover, he has to be a model citizen to have a good shot at being the elect of his country. It is a position sought with much sweat and tears.

But as for you beloved, you are already God’s elect. Your votes were counted before the foundation of the world. You did not have to project yourself favourably in the mind of the God with much debate, persuasion or travelling.  While you were still an alien and a stranger without Christ, having no hope and without God in this world, He put your name on His ballot - Ephesians 2:12. And made you elect through the campaign of His own son. Now you a victor through the blood, sweat and tears of Jesus Christ.

Jesus ran such a great campaign on your behalf that God bypassed any criteria he’d have used to disqualify you. He swept all the votes in the three largest constituencies that matter - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Now that the God-head is for you, who can be against you? Who will dare lay any charge against you as God's elect?  You are holy, unblameable and unreproveable before His eyes. Be faithful to make your election sure. You are in office because God chose you according to the election of grace - Rom: 11:4-6. Congratulations on your election.
