THE CHOSEN GENERATION OF GOD
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. 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.”
The first thing you were called here is a “chosen people”
Out of 3.2 billion people on earth, God selected you. He called you “a royal priesthood.” This priesthood is in the order of Melchizedek, a lasting ordinances. He declared you a holy nation even when your flesh is corruptible and sinful, your soul stained with iniquities, yet he called you holy. People set apart to offer praises to him who called you out of darkness to his marvellous light, I hope you know your lips and mouth are filled with evil words? but with it the Lord said you will sing unto him… Onye ka anyi bu na Chineke na – echere anyi ezi echiche!!
What a privilege?? Once you were no body, now you are somebody in Christ. People might have disregarded you in the past, there is a promise of divine recognition he made today. There were time your sins separated you from his love, today you have received mercy. Alleluia!!!
What manner of LOVE is this that we are called children of God!!! I am encouraged to come across this chapter and verse today. There is an invitation today, invitation to Royal priesthood, chosen generation and people set apart. Accept the invitation!!!
