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. –1 Peter 2:9 NKJV
How magnificent are the words of the apostle Peter! God called us out of darkness into light with the purpose to proclaim us a chosen generation, to be special, His holy nation, and a royal priesthood. We were created and then chosen not to be mere men and women but to be royalty in His court; to sit at a special place at His table and to converse with the King of kings and the Lord of all creation.
Oh beautiful Jesus, how majestic and awesome You are that You loved us so much and came to pave the way for us into all Your righteousness and holiness. Church, let not your hearts be troubled with the precarious times we are living in. Hang in there; do not let go of the hand of the Master, for the time is very near when Jesus will come and knock and invite you to sup with Him in royalty and in the magnificence of His presence. Hallelujah and amen!
- Lord Jesus, we wait patiently with open arms. Help us to keep our eyes on You only!
- Let our hearts be full of Your praise without ceasing until You take us home.
