1 Peter 2:9-10 (New King James Version)

9] But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10] who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Believers are Chosen Members of God's Spiritual Nation

On a bad day, do you sometimes feel very ordinary and run of the mill? If you know Christ, nothing could be farther from the truth. Believers are citizens of a Holy Nation. That means He chose us to be a people who are special, chosen to be a holy people who are His selected instruments to do His work.

That reality is neither ordinary nor run of the mill. Because of His love we can be both His agents and His national citizens. That allows us to do His work, carry His seal and tell others about the night - and - day difference He made for us. His stupendous act is the transcendent reality of our existence.

FOR TODAY: Write a note to God, thanking Him for choosing you.
