New Revised Standard Version
Jeremiah’s Call and Commission
4 Now the word of the Lord came to me saying,
5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
OK, this is about Jeremiah. But I think we can extend the idea to us. At least, I am content to do so. Content? Much more than that. Much more than content. Who does not delight in the security of knowing that God knew us before we were born. Now, which among us is God calling to a ministry of speaking to the nations. Maybe not something so grand; however, we are all called to serve and to share the good news of Jesus.
Thank you, Lord, for knowing me since before I was born. In Jesus's name. Amen.
