The Chosen of God by Robert Ricciardelli
Being chosen means being loved and singled out as special. In society being chosen implies exclusivity, but this is not true for God's people. God reveals to us our chosenness in Christ. The Kingdom of God is inclusive as each person is precious, unique, and valued. When we enter the realm of His presence, our value is secured and we are empowered to love and value all people, who were created in the image of God.
