Two days ago I was hit by my reading in Matthew.
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” –Matthew 22:14
Of course I don’t want to try to understand what this means. I don’t really care for what the Bible actually says only what I think it should say based upon man’s superior intellect. Man is of course so much more intelligent than God you see.
You know what I did after that verse hit me? I prayed for the salvation of my children. This verse and others are meant to humble us. And it had just that effect on me.
I watched two interesting videos on Romans 9:9-13. Jacob I loved. Esau I hated. We can reject this outright too. It clearly doesn’t fit with what man believes about God.
Or I could believe what the Bible says…
