1 Peter 2:9-10 says; "But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God's people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God's mercy."(NLT)
You are Royalty! All true Christians are a chosen generation; we make one family, we are a people distinct from the world: of another spirit, principle, and practice; which the world could never be.
Our first state was a state of gross darkness, but we have been called out of darkness by his grace into a state of joy, pleasure, and prosperity; that we should show forth the praises of the Lord by the profession of his truth, and our good conduct.
To be without mercy is a woeful state, though a man have all worldly enjoyments. But we have received mercy and have become the light of the world; so let all who have obtained mercy, walk as God's people. For his mercy endures forever!
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercy, You have made me to be your possession. I pray that your grace and mercy upon my life shall be new every morning in the mighty name of Jesus! Amen!
