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)
You are a CHOSEN
You are a SELECT
You are an ELECT
You are a ROYAL
You are a REGAL
You are a HOLY
You are SPECIAL
You are HIS OWN
This is not a secret. This is what God thinks of you. This should be so exciting to you. You are heir to the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him. When Jesus chose you and you chose Jesus, you entered the King’s Court. You have direct access to God. You became a child of the King.
“The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together. (Romans 8:16-17 KJV)
You are a child of God.
You are and heir of God.
You are joint heirs with Jesus
You have a place at the table.
You are meant to rule and reign in the kingdom of God our Father.
This is great news. It is meant to be shared with everyone. God offers the same inheritance to all who come to Him. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9 KJV)
As kids of the King, we are not be proud in the privilege, but to proclaim, declare, yell out, publish and celebrate His praises, His excellence, and His moral goodness. Really, there is no celebrity but the King of Kings. He alone is worthy of all praise and honor and glory for the great and absolutely amazing things he has done for us.
I enCOURAGE you to sit upright. Straighten your crown. We are raised up together. We are made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus because of God’s great love, mercy and grace. Let’s act like the royal’s we were called to be and spread the name of Jesus, our King.
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised [us] up together, and made [us] sit together in the heavenly [places] in Christ Jesus, (Ephesians 2:4-6 NKJV)
