Born again by the Spirit of God by faith in Christ, we become a new creation, a new human race, a new nation of God’s chosen people formed out of every race and nation. As a priesthood we intercede for the rest of humanity in prayer; we serve as prophets, speaking to them on God’s behalf, “𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙡𝙖𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙭𝙘𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙚𝙨” of Jesus.
We’ve been called out of the darkness that covers this world into the marvelous light of God’s Word. It shouldn’t surprise us when the world can’t tell the difference between good and evil, right and wrong. They’re still living in darkness.
The remedy? Proclaim the excellencies of Jesus to the World. Be the royal priesthood, the holy nation, the chosen people who belong to God; fulfill our calling.
Show the world the difference that it makes to be a Christian. Walk in the light. “𝙇𝙚𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙨𝙤 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙢𝙚𝙣...” and they will come when they see the light in you.
