Chosen by God and choosing him,
Losing earth and gaining heaven,
Loving people and being hated,
Seeing my sin and being forgiven,
Being totally broken and healed,
Dying to self and living to God...
All by the grace of Jesus,
All for the glory of God.
So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
--Romans 6:11, ESV
