Subject: I Peter 2.9
What does God really say about you? How does God really feel
about you? According to the first six words of I Peter 2.9,
you are a "Chosen People". The King James Version
of the Bible says, "but ye are a Chosen Generation".
This says that God is so excited about you and the things
He made you to do, that He called you out with passionate
enthusiasm. He is excited, and filled with intense zealousness
about your destiny. He isn't ashamed of you, but He boasts
and brags about electing you to be His child. To break it
down, God is proud of you.
He is excited that you are His. God is happy He created you,
and He is filled with joy when He sees you doing the things
He's created you to do.
In spite of popular opinion, I Peter 2.9 applies to same
gender loving people too! And, since God made you, and He
knows you best...why not believe and say what He says about
you. His definition of you is your REAL identity. So when
the world tries to beat you down, and life makes you feel
worthless, you can hold your head up high.
You can proudly stand up and be encouraged in knowing that
God - the Sovereign Creator elected and selected you to represent
Him on this earth. And He's quite proud of it! You have been
separated and set apart from the rest of the world, and God
brags about that fact.
You are called to worship God. You are to provide service
to humanity by the authority of God, the King of Kings. Listen
here, you are A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD! You are a Royal Ambassador
of God's Kingdom. You are a King Appointed Leader. Your purpose
is to serve God in worship, serve humanity by showing His
goodness, and inspire others to continue to serve God in Spirit
and in Truth.
You are AN HOLY NATION! Now think about it. A Royal Priesthood
doesn't sound anything like faggot, sissy, or punk does it?
NO! I DON'T THINK SO! Once you think of yourself like God
thinks of you, you will begin to behave like God intended
you to behave when He made you. The word "holy"
means to be set apart, or separated
from the world and separated to a Holy God. We are a "race"
of people blessed
of God. In spite of the different colors of skin, God has
called all of us an Holy Nation.
Just think, of all the people on this planet, God chose you.
Sure you may have experimented with drugs -but He chose you!
Yeah, you've dealt with alcoholism, but He still chose you!
You've been sexually promiscuous, but He chose you!
Some of you have hurt others, but He chose you!
You may not be the smartest, or the prettiest. but God Chose
You have been chosen and equipped with special talents, intelligence
and skills in order to bless humanity. You have been given
God’s ability to logically reason, create, and make
all things beautiful. You have a place here on this earth!
You have a purpose. And that purpose is NOT to be abused by
people who don’t understand you or God’s will
for your life. God Loves You (because you are His)! God Created
You (to be a blessing to humanity)! And He’s SO excited
about it, He’s called you ROYALTY! Why? Because if He’s
the King, and you’re a child of The King, ROYALTY is
who you are!
