The Bible declares in 1 Peter 2:9, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”
In these present times, we have a bunch of believers who do not understand the purpose of salvation. Salvation, being free, is God’s gift to mankind. But it came at a cost: Christ’s death. And his death was not in vain. If God’s singular intention for you was to get you saved, then he would have called you to heaven immediately after you got born again. You then would have no business being here on earth. But he has not done that and there’s a reason.
From our scripture today, Peter writes that as believers, we are a chosen, royal, holy, and peculiar people. But the important question is, “for what”? What have I been chosen for? Why has God, in his wisdom, separated me from the pack? Child of God, there’s a reason! God is a God of order and plans. There is a purpose for everything he does! The continuing part of that verse spells out this plan clearly. You have been chosen so “that ye should SHEW FORTH the praises of him…” Did you see that? You are called out to be God’s Ambassador on earth! This is why when the economy of the country you have been sent to, is failing, you rise above it. The financial strength of Ambassadors is not determined by the country in which they are posted, their salaries come from home. Heaven will determine your worth!
It is, therefore, my prayer for you this morning, that you would be a faithful Kingdom Ambassador, showcasing the glory of God to all men!!!
