“But you are a chosen people, the King’s cohanim (priests), a holy nation, a people for God to possess! Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.”
1 Peter 2:9 CJB
We always need to be reminded of this: God has chosen us out of the world to be His representatives to the world!
“Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; before, you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
1 Peter 2:10 CJB
We all were once lost in the world, doing ungodly things. Now we are the people of God, His chosen ambassadors sharing His grace and mercy!
“Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and temporary residents not to give in to the desires of your old nature, which keep warring against you; but to live such good lives among the pegans that even though they now speak against you as evil-doers, they will, as a result of seeing your good actions, give glory to God on the day of His coming.”
1 Peter 2:11-12 CJB
Today, two things: don’t get caught up in the world, but instead be caught up in the LORD and share His glorious Good News. That’s what we get to do!
Have a blessed day in Him!
