11/23/19: 1 Peter 1:13-2:10; Psalm 119:33-48; Proverbs 28:11
In our recent Sunday morning study from Max Lucado’s “Fearless” one of the fears we discussed was a concern that we are insignificant and that our lives do not matter to anyone. The following passage from 1 Peter is one of my favorites and should put this fear to rest:
1 Peter 2: 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. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
We are “chosen,” “royal,” “holy,” a “special possession,” and “the people of God.” And this applies to all believers – there are no exceptions
