God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
We’re special. This brings me back to the old adage. “You’re special. God doesn’t make junk.” It’s probably more real than we know. It also harkens back to the paradox. On the one hand, we’re special. However, we shouldn’t break our arms patting ourselves on the back because of who we are. Whatever God did on our behalf was only done to bring glory to Him and His character. There is nothing inherent about us that makes us special. It’s Him who makes us special.
Today is a day we rejoice in God who, in fact, did call us out of darkness. We are His special possession. We shouldn’t take this lightly but we should rejoice in God.
