“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
It makes me feel special to be likened to royalty. A chosen people. Holy. Set apart. It might be very tempting to stop here. I can walk away feeling honoured and on top of the world.

Carefully, I must not just take the ‘feel-good’ parts of scripture and walk away. It’s important I take the entire scripture in context. And of course, when I look closer I see that there’s more to it.
I have been set apart for a reason. And it’s not just to feel good about myself. No, God has chosen me, made me a part of this chosen generation, in order to declare God’s praises.
What about you, how are you declaring His praises today?
I also have to ask myself these questions. Am I taking God’s word to the next generation? Am I sharing my joy with my neighbour? Is being a part of a chosen generation obvious in the way that I live? Or am I walking around with my face downcast?
If the answer is no, I can change that. You cab change that. We can change that.
Do have a blessed day.
