1 Peter 2:9 NIV
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.
You are chosen! God has selected you, picked you/us for ‘his team’. Our task? To represent him, to set apart our lives to reflecting his character and values, and to become a ‘place’ of worship.
Chosen? Royal? Holy? Special? Who are we God that you should call us this! We are only chosen, royal, holy and special because of you – our Father who we celebrate.
