The Privilege Of Being God's


"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light" ( 1 Pet 2:9).

All of us have a time or two when we get down on ourselves. Perhaps it is because we have disappointed someone we care about, or maybe we may even feel that we have let God down. Today's verse is one of those scriptures that speaks about our true worth to God. When we accept Jesus into our lives, we become special to Him and His Father... We become chosen people... By being created in His image, Jesus says this: "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then them?" (Matt.6:26) We all like being valuable... Another cool thing about being God's is that He always takes into account what He sees in our hearts. (1 Sam.16:7) That sets the tone for how we ought to view those around us. My mom always wanted to get value for her money. That word value should be a part of our relationship with God. A Christian's self-image is based on that special relationship with God, and not on worldly values. I think that this all culminates in a healthy and realistic view of ourselves..."Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgement, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you" (Rom.12:3). To not think of ourselves with too high or low a view, is to see ourselves as God does. Its about the privilege of being God's....

Have a wonderful day... Let His light shine through you... Love mark Phil.4:11
