chosen

random thoughts…

But you are a chosen race who serve as Priests for The Kingdom,

a holy people,

a redeemed assembly…

via 1 Peter 2:9.

how exciting is that…  chosen, royal, holy, redeemed.  just like the prophet hosea declares to the nation of israel a new name, ‘loved’… so the gospel story is about giving a new nation a new name.

we have a new identity… but it’s not just poetry.  this new identity calls for a new way to live.

you should proclaim the praises of him who called you from darkness into his excellent light

selah.
