1 Pet. 2:9 – 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 marvellous light.
Who are you in Jesus? The following truths should be read in a way that they sink into the heart and not just the ears. You are cleansed and forgiven (1 John 1:9); you are a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). You are loved by your heavenly Father and have been adopted as His child (1 John 3:1). You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps. 139:14), and God delights in you (Ps. 147:11). You are God’s chosen (1 Pet. 2:9); you are the apple of His eye (Ps. 17:8).
See how precious you are to God if you are in Christ. Should anything keep you from living with absolute confidence that God loves you and from remembering who you are in Christ Jesus? Remind yourself of your identity and heritage in the Lord.
