9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, 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
In this verse Peter lays it out clearly that we are part of a great family of believers.
Our family is spiritual and we were chosen by God to praise him.
Why? Because of His work on our behalf.
We didn’t earn it. We don’t deserve it. It shouldn’t be the way it is, but we are sons and daughters of the Living God.
This should encourage us all because it’s a reminder of the faith we have in an Almighty God.
