“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10)
As followers of Jesus, we belong. We belong as children of God. We belong as a people that belong to God. He has brought us to Him out of the darkness. We have received mercy. And for all this, we get to share that with others.
This week, let us remember that we belong to God. Let us remember that He has redeemed us. Let us remember he has given us mercy. Let us share that good news with others!
