Who are chosen? Each and every member of the human race is invited to live with God in a state of Joy and Love for all eternity; but many ridicule and revile the prospect. They are busy coping with their so-called daily reality and have far more important things to do. God Himself has given His own son, that we might be saved and many make fun of it. God Himself came in the flesh, lived among us and then underwent a grisly death for our sake, and people make light of it. Then there are those who, like brute beasts, boast; “We don't believe you exist, and we sure don't give a damn about your son." Some just spurn the invitation whilst others blaspheme and persecute the messengers with some even killing them.
Hardly surprising that it is few indeed who are chosen!
