nouwenBeing Chosen

Jesus is taken by God or, better, chosen by God.  Jesus is the Chosen One.  From all eternity God has chosen his most precious Child to become the saviour of the world.  Being chosen expresses a special relationship, being known and loved in a unique way, being singled out.  In our society our being chosen always implies that others are not chosen.  But this is not true for God.   God chooses his Son to reveal to us our chosenness.

In the Kingdom of God there is no competition or rivalry.  The Son of God shares his chosenness with us.  In the Kingdom of God each person is precious and unique, and each person has been given eyes to see the chosenness of others and rejoice in it.
