1 Peter 2:9-10
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Now, more than ever, we need to remember the great calling God has for each of his children. He has chosen us, given us great dignity and set us apart for himself. May we never forget the darkness that He drew us from and the amazing life He has brought us into, and may that truth forever be marked by our praise. Because of God’s great love for us, we have a new identity as His people, ones who have experienced His great mercy which has radically changed our lives and dramatically changed our destiny
Father, Thank you for your great love for us. You alone are worthy of all my praise. Thank you for drawing me to yourself and setting me apart as yours. Help me to live in the light of this truth and may my life bring you honor in the actions of my life, the words of my mouth and the attitudes of my heart. In the name of your Son, Jesus, I pray, Amen.
