Every story ever told reveals one simple truth. Everyone wants to be chosen.
Cinderella is chosen by the prince. She goes from rags to riches. Jackie Robinson is chosen to play for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Baseball changes forever.
Scripture is filled with real-life stories of men and women chosen by God to make a difference in their world. They are called the EKKLESIA – a Greek word that means, “the called out ones”. It’s where we get the English word, “church”.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, you are one of the called out ones. You are part of this remarkable thing God calls His Church. You have been chosen by God for something significant in your community in this generation.
This is the story of the called out ones, the ekklesia. It’s our story, together.
