It is so gracious that we are still alive. For God has loved us all the same way that is why he has kept his promise to us and we are still alive.
However, are you yet close to God? We have several religions in this world and have they taught us; they teach confidence and strong belief that where we are is the true way. However, what is the reality?
Whether you are a Muslim, pagan, Baha’i or Christian, here is the truth “it is only when you accept Jesus Christ that you will be saved and see the father”.
John 14:6 “…. I’m the way, the truth and the life; no one goes to the father except by me”
So it is well written in the book of John that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life. My brothers and sisters, God has chosen you, He wants you to serve him, spread the gospel and share love with one another.
So what do you require to be close to God? Remember, in the past life before accepting Jesus Christ, we were living in fresh, full of evil things, but if we confess our sins, God shall forgive our sins and keeps his promise so you need confession and repentance.
John 1:9 “But if we confess our sins, to God, he will promise and do what is right; he will forgive us our sins and purify us from all our wrong doing”.
And then you need constant love for Him, for your friends, neighbors and every one because God is love and through love, we receive the grace of God. The love should not be considered on factors; you should not love for exchange of things of the world. The love should be of divine, forgiveness and Kindness.
Matthew 22:37 “Jesus answered, love the God your God, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind”
You can also get close to God by being patience, faithful and standing in truth. For so many of us have turned away and ignored God’s call when desires of things of the world win our attention; we struggle to please the world by forgetting God. Despite the situation or condition, have patience and faith in Him so that you can get so close to Him.
Psalms 72:13 “He shall spare the poor and the needy and shall save the soul of the needy”
Now God has chosen you, are you willing to serve Him? Let’s walk together in divine and accept our calling by God. When we are down, we seek God’s grace and what happens when he lifts us up, we despair his work and services.
But if God chose you to minister, to teach, to lead and to do any service for Him, do it as you are doing for the lord because that pleases him.
It is of a strong meaning God to choose. Imagine where you have been all the time when he hasn’t chosen you! How were you living? A life of desperate thinking, goals and desperate plans, but because now you are chosen, your life is full of light, grace and happiness through Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 1:4 “Just as he chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love”
When God choose you, you become near to Him and you will know whatever belongs to you, because His spirit will always show you and talk to you good things that you always need to know and understand.
Don’t worry anymore; you will no longer be desperate, depressed or starved. When he choose you, he want to lift you and when he lifts you, he also want to lift others, because the grace of God is everlasting and unlimited.
1st Corinthians 2:12 “Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God”
After God choosing you to serve him, he wants you to keep the law and his promises and your vows. When we are broken, desperate or depressed, we used to prayer nights, all day and even fasting because we wanted to receive his grace. You called him several times and he listened to you and he accepted you, now he has chosen you, so you have to keep the law and the promises.
He that gives can also take back because most of us after receiving the grace of God, we do not keep the laws and our promises, we think we cannot go back to the life we were living before being chosen.
Proverb 3:1 “My son, do not forget my law but let your heart keep my commands”
Isaiah 1:17 “Learn to do well, seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the faithless, plead for the widow”
You are close to God because you have been chosen and now you are the leader in the service of God, learn to do well, seek judgment without discrimination or factors, relieve the oppressed, save the orphans and plead for the widow. A good leader should be exemplary and should need to lead people who are equally treated.
Another thing is, even when you are not yet called or chosen by Him; seek him and keep the laws because he knows every creature that trust and serves him. At a moment, he will answer your prayers and he will choose you to become a leader and a loyal servant of Him.
Nahum 1:17 “The lord is good, a strong fold in the day of trouble and he knows that trust in him”
Build your foundation in him and it will be stronger enough, it will resist every evil that shall try to break it.
With all that written, you are being chosen by the lord to serve Him. Spread the gospel, share love and worship and trust in him. Read the bible and seek for the Holy Spirit to guide you.
Let us extend the gospel on media so that our brothers and sisters, who can’t get access to the Bible, can read these guides. This requires global advertising on social media and on popular platforms.
I have a mission of saving 11000 people across the globe to make them close to God and Jesus Christ. This will require me to advertise the gospel and conducting online services, we need USD2300 for this service/project.

Let us pray
Father in heaven, thank you for this gracious time
Thank you father for choosing us to serve you, we are too pleased
Father, may you protect us from the evil things, from trespasses and give us wisdom
Fight for us every war because your blood heals, save us from diseases, lift us from poverty and give us enough food so that we can feed the hungry ones
Thank you father for listening to my prayer
In the name of Jesus Christ, have received my wishes.
