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. 1 Peter 2:9-10

Observations

• Remember that God chose you and has a remarkable purpose for your life.
• You were designed for a destiny and created for community.
• Your worth is based on what God has done, not what you do.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I thank you for placing value on my life. I thank you that you have chosen me and are shaping me. I thank you for calling me out of darkness into your wonderful light. I look to you to continue your work in my life. Help me to be active in your priestly work of reconciliation. I pray for my family and friends today who do not yet serve you. Draw them to a place of full surrender. Amen! Amen! Amen!
