God has chosen you (1 Thess. 1:4)

“Brothers!

Beloved by God!

We know

That he has chosen you.”

εἰδότες, ἀδελφοὶ ἠγαπημένοι ὑπὸ τοῦ Θεοῦ, τὴν ἐκλογὴν ὑμῶν,

Paul said “Brothers (ἀδελφοὶ)!  Beloved by God (ἠγαπημένοι ὑπὸ τοῦ Θεοῦ)!  We know (εἰδότες) that he has chosen you (τὴν ἐκλογὴν ὑμῶν).”  Paul pointed out that these Thessalonian followers of Jesus Christ were his fellow believing brothers and loved by God.  They knew that God had chosen them, just as the Israelites were the chosen people of God.  They, the Thessalonians were the new chosen ones of God.  They were special.  Do you feel special as a believer in Jesus Christ?
