A Chosen People
Do you feel like a very special person? You are! Who says? God says you are! So, lift your head up high and know you are somebody!
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God” (1 Peter 2:9).
Like new born babies, craving pure spiritual milk, we hunger to grow more in our salvation, especially now that we have tasted that the Lord is good.
Wouldn’t you agree? Once you have discovered that the Lord is good, and that you belong to Him, you want more, a lot more of Him! He who has chosen us has unleashed our desire to know more about Him and we develop this insatiable appetite to learn more about our King.
So, as we come to Him, entering His gates, He who is the living stone – rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to Him – we also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house. We are His royal priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices to Him through His blessed Son, Jesus Christ. This spiritual house with its chief cornerstone, who is our precious Jesus, will never be put to shame.
As a chosen generation, we are to live our lives before the world so it may see our good deeds and glorify God on that day He returns.
