God’s Favorite People

Friday, Jan. 27                             

God seemed to have special regard for some special people in the Bible.  Among those would be Abraham, Moses, David, Gideon, and Samuel—and many others, including a few women.  And by the way, he took Enoch and Elijah home without their tasting death.  That’s special!  Most, if not all of these, were chosen by God, who made them into special people just as he did in choosing the disciples in the N.T., which might modify how we view this “favored status” thing.    Then their is the list of heroes of the faith in Hebrews 11 which was compiled by a human  author, but remember that God inspired it.  In the New Testament, Jesus seemed to have a special place in his heart for John.  While on the cross Jesus entrusted his mother to him.  He also gave special attention to Peter and James, who, along with John, were treated a bit differently than the other disciples.  And how about Polycarp, Augustine, Luther and Calvin?  Or Jonathon Edwards or Billy Graham?  Now, here’s my question.  Will God have a special place in his heart for these special people when in heaven and for all eternity?  If so, does that mean that God loves them more than others?  I don’t have an answer for this.  Help me out.
