Read Deuteronomy 7:6-8 and answer the following questions: What was Israel chosen to be? (Is their any New Testament scripture that tells us God us chosen us the same way?) Did God chose Israel because they were a large, powerful nation? What were the two reasons God gives for choosing Israel? How does this apply to our lives?
- God chose us to be His own special treasure because He loves us and to keep the oath He swore, Deut 7:8. Yep 1 Peter 2:9 tells us that we are "a people for God's own possession"....... who "have received mercy." Thanks Mike
