"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. 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." I Peter 2:9-10
This is my prayer for this year:
That we would know who we are in Christ Jesus and that we would live like it.
We had our sweet time Sunday night where I have the privilege of praying with the girls and dedicating our school year to God. I just love those beside the bed sweet times of prayer. They are moments to treasure. Daddy left them sweet notes on their first day of school (he leaves for work before they wake up). Oh, I just love that!
One of my favorite things that he wrote to the girls was this, "Remember you only need to be yourself! When the world or your friends tell you to be something else, run it by God. See if it matches who you are in Him. If not, then put it aside and keep true to what He wants you to be!"
We are a chosen people, a royal priesthood. As Beth said this weekend, we are heirs, or heiresses, of the King. What would our lives be like if we lived like we believed that?
