Passage: 1 Peter 2:4-10
Verse: 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV 2011)
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.
The heading for this passage is The Living Stone and a Chosen People. While Jesus may have been rejected by many during the time He walked upon the earth, He is the precious cornerstone of the spiritual house being built by God. To those of us who believe in the sacrifice by Jesus Christ, on our behalf, we have become the chose people of God. We have been grafted into the family and have become a part of a holy nation. Thank you Lord Jesus! Praise your holy name! May we help others to come out of the darkness and into the light. May we extend mercy to those who have yet to choose to walk in the light of Christ.
