9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10
We are the Lord’s special people. He has called us out of the light. Jesus was willing to lay down His life to save us. We are called to be set a part from this world and all that it worships. This world is built upon the lies and deceptions of Satan. Too many today who claim to follow Christ have simply aligned their hearts with this world and its ways.
Before we came to Christ we were lost. But in Christ we have been adopted into God’s family as children of the Most High God. The deception of the world is that all people are children of God. But when we examine biblical truth we see that only those who call Jesus Lord and Savior are children of God. The mercy of God is only poured out upon His sons and daughters. For those who would reject Jesus Christ the only thing that awaits them is the judgement of Almighty God. So many have abandoned truth in this hour to be accepted by man. But this is a stench in the nostrils of the Lord. Those who abandon truth in this hour only have the fires of judgement waiting for them.
