1 Peter 2: 9-10
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
People often base their self- concept on their accomplishments. But our relationship with Christ is far more important than our jobs, successes,wealth, or knowledge. We have been chosen by God as his very own, and we have been called to represent him to others. Remember that your value comes from being one of God’s children, not from what you can achieve. You have worth because of what God does, not because of what you do. Let us be ready every second of the day to share the gospel that was given to us, that we would praise God in doing so. That our very nature would be anxious and in expectation of what the Holy Spirit will do through us as we stand upon the word given to us and share it and live it before the world. What a glorious purpose we have, what a joy to posses the mercies given to us with such a price. Be encouraged Folks, the task we have been given is God’s to do through us, let us make way in our hearts, souls and minds for Christ to do so.
Much Love Tom
