Many are invited, but few are chosen

You are the children of the LORD your God … for you are a people holy to the LORD your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession.The LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you. … I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, “You are my servant”; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.

Do you see the man the LORD has chosen? There is no one like him among all the people … “I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you,” declares the LORD Almighty. … “For many are invited, but few are chosen … You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.”

If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. … The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth.

The Lamb will triumph … he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen, and faithful followers.
