How do I choose a “higher power”? Isn’t that a contradiction?
By definition, a “higher power” is stronger and higher than me, right? If I choose a “higher power,” then is that really a higher power if I can choose it? Who REALLY is the higher power? I submit to you that the higher power is the one doing the choosing which is me!
But not in Christianity…I love the fact that Jesus CHOSE me! John 15:16 stated to His disciples: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and abear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that bwhatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.”**
To all of us, the Bible tells us that we are chosen by God in Ephesians 1:4: “even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him.”**
I am not saying we are chosen. God is saying we are His chosen children whom He adopts into His family. I had nothing to do with it my adoption.
God is truly a Higher Power and THE only Higher Power because He chose me!
-Mark (chosen by God not because I’m good but because He is good)
