“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.” 1 Peter 2:9
Imagine, God is saying to you that He has chosen you: “You, yes you, my friend. You are my chosen generation.” Your generation is in line for blessings because God has chosen you and has decided to bless you. You did not choose Him, He chose you. Is not this truth just too wonderful for words?
You have been chosen to show God to the world. You have been transformed to shine as the light of the world, radiating the light of Jesus. You are called to stand out, being a beacon of light and hope in this dark world, attracting those who are in need to come and feed on the Word of God and experience His love.
As we grow in Christ we must always remember that we were once in the kingdom of darkness and this must propel us to help those who are still there, through our love and our prayers. Thank God for His marvelous light that He has allowed us to enter and enjoy. Remember these words: chosen, selected, hand-picked by God and let them brighten your day. Be blessed.
Lord, please help me to see myself as You see me. I agree with You and I pray that I will walk worthy of this great call to be one of the chosen ones. Amen.
