We Are Called, But Are We Chosen?
Christ said in both Matthew 20:16 and Matthew 22:14, ” For many are called, but few are chosen”. Have we really taken the time to think through what Christ has said here? Why is it that many are called but only a few are chosen? How do the many get reduced down to the few? Have we asked ourselves those questions Brethren?
Naturally, we all want to be part of the few, so occasionally we should be considering the process itself. Who are the called and who are the chosen? Is there a difference between being “called” and being “chosen”? Let us look through their meanings in light of these two parables for deeper understanding.
