“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” 1 Peter 2:9-10
You, yes you, are chosen by God. A royal priesthood, set apart for a sacred purpose. Not a forgotten soul in the vastness of existence, but a treasured part of God’s grand design. Remember, you once wandered in darkness, lost and without identity. Yet, in His mercy, God called you into His marvelous light. You are now a part of His people, recipients of divine mercy.
So, rise in the awareness of your calling. You're not just here to exist but to show forth the praises of the One who plucked you from darkness. Embrace your identity as a chosen, holy, and peculiar vessel. Let the light within you illuminate the world, declaring the praises of the Almighty. You are not ordinary; you are extraordinary in God’s eyes. Walk as one who carries the mercy and light of the King.
