“Each one of us is chosen by God. Each one of us carries a promise that the Lord made: ‘Walk in my presence, be irreproachable, and I will do this for you.’ Each one of us makes bonds with the Lord: you can make them. If you don’t want to make them, you are free to choose. This is a fact, though.
It should also be a question: How do I feel about the the choice? Do I feel like a Christian by coincidence? How do I live the promise, a promise of salvation on my path, and how am I faithful to the bond? How is He faithful?”
