A Royal Priesthood

Something to think about.

A Royal Priesthood

9 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. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1peter 2:9-10

We are chosen, The thought that God chose me humbles me. He chose me.The creator of the universe has chosen me, He has chosen you and not only has he chosen you he has declared that you are a royal priesthood. He says that we are a holy nation, a people of His own, we belong to Him. That we were called from darkness into His marvelous light. We are his people to proclaim Him. We have received His mercy.

The world has not received mercy, the world has not been called His people the world is still in darkness. The world does not proclaim Him.

Imagine, you are not a mistake, you’re not a freak of nature, you were not in the right place at the right time. You have been sought after through the eons of time. God specifically and intentionally chose you because He loves you. Not only did He choose you He has elevated you to the position of a royal priest. He not only call you but He has a purpose for you a special calling only you can fulfill. The all knowing, all seeing, all powerful God, had you in mind when he created the universe. All of it, all of the universe was created to support you. All that we see in this life, in this world, and in the universe was made to provide you with sustenance to live.  All of it was done so He could call us His people. God values you so much He created the entire heavens just so you could live. Then He chose you.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
