Each of us is a diamond in the eyes of God.

“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain.”
Jesus said if you knew him then you would know the One he called “Abba” (John 14:7).
The Aramaic term that Jesus used is more accurately translated as “daddy” than father.
It is an intimate term a child might use for a generously loving dad.
In my opinion, it’s a combination of the most compassionate father and mother rolled into one.
In today’s scripture verse, Jesus says we were all chosen by him and therefore God as well at the very start.
Our “original chosenness” is what sparks us to want to reciprocate and choose God.
My dear friends, it’s all grace.
This is not a worthiness contest or a game to somehow merit God’s favor.
We are all loved and cherished before time began.
As St. Paul put it, God “has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, as he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before him” (Ephesians 1:3-4).
So claim your belovedness in God, live from that place of love, and channel that Love to the world.
