Application for November 16-17, 2013 :: 1 Peter 2:9-10

1 Peter 2:9-10

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

===

This week I was talking about this verse with my kids and I was struck by all the corporate, plural words that it contained

Race – not just a man
Priesthood – Not just a priest
Nation – not just a citizen
God’s People – not just a person

When we become a child of God, we immediately have many siblings, many partners, many fellow travelers. Once this was not so, but now it is.

And we move from no mercy and darkness into receiving mercy and into marvelous light.

It’s a good news/good news thing.
