Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Going Beyond the Self (Biblical Identity)
The Radical Re-Orientation: Recognise that you are chosen by God (1 Peter 2:4-10)
You can be invited to meet the Prime Minister or the Queen. You can be chosen or selected to the highest position or office. But nothing can compete with the fact you are chosen by God. This is a tremendous privilege. It was God’s idea, God’s initiative and his personal invitation. He chose you to belong to Him. He chose you so that you can extend his Kingdom on earth. You are now part of the very special royal family with an important mission to fulfil.
