Summer Devotional May 26th, 2017

1 Peter 2:9:  “You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

Two points here:

  1.  You are special.  If you’re an adult, you don’t hear this enough.  Children have praise heaped upon them all the time for the minutest little things.  Adults do not (even at work we’re not praised a lot).  So I’m here to tell you:  you are special.  You are chosen.  You are loved.  You are holy.  You are God’s.  You have a purpose.  You are living the life God wants you to lead.
  2. We should always be grateful God has called us into the light.  When times are bad and circumstances are spinning out of control and we are feeling overwhelmed by all of these things in our lives that we can’t control, remember it could be worse; infinitely worse.  You could be walking in the dark.  For all of eternity.  Praise Him now for his mercy and goodness.
