Welcome to Royal Redeemer!

The Chosen Bible Study
We belong to the family of God because Jesus invites us, making the Bible and all its promises as true for us today as it was for God’s chosen nation. Once we belong to Him, we’re not only given a new identity, we’re ushered into a new reality. One that is sure, powerful, and life-changing.

Each week this group will watch an episode from the series “The Chosen” and use the study guide “What Does It Mean to Be Chosen?” to connect participants to the Bible in a brand-new way.

This study includes:
A deeper look at Isaiah 43 and its fulfillment in Jesus and the lives of His followers (including us!)
Script excerpts, quotes, and illustrations from the show
Guiding questions for groups or individuals

Being chosen by Jesus has beautiful and far-reaching implications—although it says even more about the Chooser than the choosees! We are loved because He is love. We are saved because He is merciful. We belong to the family of God because Jesus invites us, making the Bible and all its promises as true for us today as it was for God’s chosen people.

What does it actually mean to be Chosen? To answer that question, we’re going Old school—Testament that is—which leads us back to the New. Which always leads us directly to Jesus!

In the Feeding of the 5,000 Jesus was teaching the disciples that when they bring what they have to Him, no matter how small it seems, He will accomplish great things through them. And He was preparing them for the task of the Great Commission of making disciples that's recorded at the end of Matthew's Gospel.
How about you? Is there something that you sense Jesus asking you to do that seems incredibly impossible? Remember the loaves and fishes, the baskets of leftovers, the Lord's patience with the hesitant disciples. Bring what you have to Jesus, trusting in Him; then step out in faith and he will accomplish great things through you for your good and to His glory.
Maybe through helping to meet the physical, financial or emotional needs of people, Jesus can work through you to meet their spiritual needs and accomplish the Great Commission through you. As you share your faith story.
