To be the Chosen of God. To receive the promises of God, the privileges of a Son and heir of God.
The Peace that passes understanding, the Joy unspeakable and full of Glory, My God can supply all your need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
It sounds wonderful. It is our promise, it is Who We Are.
1 Peter 2:9
‘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:’
Who are We?
We are a Chosen Generation:
Like (the 12 tribes), the Hebrews of Moses time, we who love and accept Christ as Lord and Savior, are brought out of the slavery, (of sin and death), into the promised land, a land of milk and honey. A place where the Lord is our Shepard, and we shall not want.
We are a Royal Priesthood:
As Christians, we are of the tribe of Levi. The people charged with knowing and protecting the Word of God, and the sharing of the Love, Mercy, and Grace of the Lord.
Leading in Praise and Worship, in the building of His Church, His Body.
We are a Holy People:
The Lord wants us to be Sanctified, set apart, have a renewed mind, to know His good, acceptable and perfect will. (Romans 12)
To become a Holy Nation, Justified, blameless in the beloved.
We are a Peculiar People:
The Lord uses the Weak to confound the Mighty, the Foolish to confound the Wise.
‘Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.’
A Peculiar People, Zealous of Good Works, to do the Work Of God.
What are we called to?
We are called to Praise God:
For bringing us out of slavery, into the salvation of the Lord, to be a light to those who live in darkness. To comfort the brokenhearted, to heal the sick, to proclaim the year of the Lord.
Today is the day of Salvation if you will hear His voice, act on it Today. Walk-in His Light and Grace. Live a life that people desire to be like and follow you.

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
