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

-1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

WHAT an astonishing revelation is contained within this simple yet profound verse of Scripture.
God has selected you and me out of all the peoples of the world for a very special reason. We have been annointed with the oil of gladness to serve as His representative to all that we meet. We have been selected, called, chosen, consecrated and set apart for a very particular purpose. As as we  journey through this life  of pain and sorrow we are to proclaim to the world, in thought, word, action, attitude and motive, the excellent glories of Him who redeemed us from the darkness of sin and death to the glories of His life and light in Jesus
– All praise to His Name.

My Prayer

THANK You Father for including me as one of Your chosen servants.
Enable me, in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of the Lord Jesus to be a good an faithful witness to You in my earthly walk. May You be glorified and exulted in my life and may all I say and do be to your eternal praise and glory, from this day forward and for evermore.
AMEN
