Even if they've not chosen me, it doesn't matter because Jesus will always choose me
Hello beloved ones of God, I hope you’re all fine by God’s grace.
I guess you’re ready for part three of our Christmas series 2017, aimed at letting us know more about Jesus Christ.
Today’s post is going to answer a question we’ve often asked ourselves or others : Does God care about me ?
Today’s post is directed to anyone who has ever felt rejected, unchosen, leftover, abandoned, not worth it, outcast, to anyone who’s ever felt like they were a misfit.
Ok, if you’ve never ever felt that way I guess this post isn’t for you, you can just close this page and move on. But, if just like me you’ve already felt like no one cared about you, if you’ve already felt as if no one ever chose you, then you’re at the right place and at the right time because today you’ll find out something interesting.
Jesus came for the

  • Outcast/Rejected ones
  • Brokenhearted
  • Loners
  • Abandoned
  • Rejected ones
  • Broken ones
  • Lost ones
  • Leftovers
  • Unchosen ones

In case you don’t believe me, I’ll prove it to you with clear examples.

1. The Outcast

An outcast is a person who has been rejected or ostracized by their society or social group. What better example of an outcast would we have than the leprous man whom Jesus healed.
In The Old Testament (and still now in some places) Leprosy totally disqualified anyone from having a social life and from living together with the local community. In fact if someone was a leprous, everyone would avoid touching them.
However, Jesus loved lepers and wasn’t afraid to touch them in order to heal them.
Mark 1:40‭-‬42 NIV

A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus was indignant. He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.

As you can see, Jesus came for the Outcast. In fact, most of His time during ministry He spent it with the outcast.

2. The Brokenhearted

Ok, I don’t know what usually breaks your heart ( I just know what breaks mine) but I can at least be persuaded that you’ve already had a brokenheart.
Someone could have a broken heart because of a relationship which is just from ending, because of the death of a loved one, because of a disappointment etc.
Here we’ll look at a mom whose heart was broken by the death of her son. Guess who helped her out: Jesus.
Why did He help her out ?-Because He came for the brokenhearted.
Luke 7:12‭-‬16 NIV

As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.” Then he went up and touched the bier they were carrying him on, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother. They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said. “God has come to help his people.”

I think the big lesson of this story is the fact that if you’ve got a broken heart right now, you’re already well positioned to receive a miracle from God.
Psalm 147: 3 NIV He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds
Which brings us to the next category of people for whom Jesus came.

3. The Misfit and the loner

At times our actions and choices disqualify us from being accepted by our society, thus obliging us to live in isolation.
This reminds me of the Samaritan woman who lived with a man who wasn’t her husband, and who consequently was a misfit in a society in which sexual immorality was to be punished by stoning to death.
This woman was so ashamed that even to carry water at the well, she chose hours at which nobody would see her. She was at the same time a misfit and a loner.
Nevertheless, isn’t it interesting to see that Jesus chose to meet her right at the well where she expected to be all alone? Isn’t it wonderful to see that Jesus chose her to give her Living Water, eternal life, and to bring a big deal of people in her whole town to salvation in Christ Jesus ?
John 4:6‭-‬7‭, ‬10‭, ‬13‭-‬15‭, ‬39‭-‬41 NIV

Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.” Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. And because of his words many more became believers.

Do we need any other proof that Jesus came for you who feels today like a misfit or a loner ?

4. The Leftovers, the Abandoned , the Unchosen ones

When things are hard in your life you expect people around you to at least pity you and try to help you out right ? You expect at least your family, your friends, or even the passer-bys to see your pain and help you a little but right ?
John 5:2‭-‬3‭, ‬5‭-‬7 NIV

Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.

For lots of years, this man waited for someone to help him but no one did. He surely felt abandoned, leftover and unchosen, because others were being helped but it never came for him. Leftover because others found their healing, their miracle but his turn to be blessed seemed to be never coming.
No one ever chose to help him out, they probably chose others but never him. He was always the leftover, the Unchosen one. (This is the moment where single ladies and gentlemen identify with this ).
Anyhow, once Jesus stepped into his situation, He fixed it up instantaneously.
John 5:8‭-‬9 NIV

Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.

Now, tell me you still don’t believe that Jesus came for you who feels abandoned, leftover, never chosen.
There’ll be many other examples in The Bible about this, but I think we can stop here for this blog post.
Finally, I am not trying to minimize what you’re going through or what you went through lately, but I just want you to know that even if they’ve not chosen you it doesn’t matter, because Jesus will always choose you.


Father Lord God Almighty King of Glory, thank You so much for showing me today that though I feel leftover, Unchosen, abandoned, rejected, brokenhearted, forsaken outcast , or like a misfit, You still love me and You still embrace me, because You came for me , even in my mess. I thank You Lord in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.
