"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."--1 Peter 2:9(NKJV)
If you are a child of God, you have been chosen to bear his image and his name. Therefore, do you know your value and worth as a Kingdom citizen? God says you are royal. He calls you special. You have been set apart from others, not so that you can pontificate or walk in pride and arrogance, but so that you may proclaim God! You have been chosen to proclaim the praises of the King; the One who brought you out of a place of brokenness, hurt, pain, despondency, addiction, abuse, rejection, etc. to a place of healing, deliverance, victory, and prosperity.
As ambassadors of the Kingdom, we are called to represent Him on the earth so that others can come out of the darkness into His marvelous light. Look around you. Look at the state of our schools. Look at the unrest in our neighborhoods and communities. Look at the challenges in our families. If there was ever a time for the citizens of the Kingdom to proclaim the praises of God, it is now! If we do not proclaim the praises of God, who will?
Who can you encourage, help, or support today by bringing the Kingdom of God to them through your witness?
