Created, Chosen and Loved

You are not here by accident. Your life has intention and purpose. The God of the universe created you, chose you and loves you more than you can ever imagine.

I am created by God:

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

Know that the LORD is God.  It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.  Psalm 100:3

Remember these things, Jacob, for you, Israel, are my servant. I have made you, you are my servant; Israel, I will not forget youIsaiah 44:21

Then all your people will be righteous and they will possess the land forever. They are the shoot I have planted, the work of my hands, for the display of my splendor. Isaiah 60:21

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation. Galatians 6:15

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

And to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:24

Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Colossians 3:9-10
 
I am chosen by God:

On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. John 14:20

Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:17

There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. Ephesians 1:4

So that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:7

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1

I am loved by God:

The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. Jeremiah 31:3

I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:23

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5

May have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:18-19

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.      1 John 4:9-10
