1 Peter 2:9 Amplified Bible (AMP)
9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A CONSECRATED NATION, A [special] PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
Once we embrace Jesus and what He has done for us, we become part of a chosen race, we become part of a royal priesthood a nation that has been set a part for Gods own possession. Those are very strong and specific descriptions and they must mean something. We cannot just continue being the same old person that we have always been.
We must now proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into light. That is the process of actualizing dominion. Not only do we declare with out mouths, we declare even greatly by how we now live life, our perception and perspective are different. We now walk in light and not in darkness thus there must be a very distinct way in which we live life.
Not once in a million years can one confuse light and darkness to be the same thing, no matter how small the light. Thus when you and I become part of this chosen race, there ought to be a difference that’s very visible in our life.
We start off as babes craving the milk of the word but as we remain consistent in taking this milk of the word then we grow and mature to become mature sons of God who can then fully manifest the glory of our kingdom. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. You and I are the ones to manifest Gods will in heaven here on earth.
W have a new identity that must be expressed, we have a new mandate that we must understand and grow into fulfilling. We must mature in Christ to fully express and actualize His original will and intent for His sons here on earth.
Romans 8:19 (AMP)
19 For [even the whole] creation [all nature] waits eagerly for the children of God to be revealed.
What does it mean to you to be called a; A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A CONSECRATED NATION, A [special] PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION?
How are you demonstrating God’s will in heaven here on earth where he has planted you… in your family, community, work and nation?
Are you intentional about maturing in Christ or are you forever content in remaining a babe?
