A Peculiar People

I Peter 2:9; "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness in His marvellous light:"

We that believe in the Lord are set apart from the world in order to belong totally to God and to declare the gospel of salvation to His glory and praise. This means all true Christians are a chosen generation. We are one family which are a separate people from the common world.

We, true servants of Christ are a royal priesthood, we are separated from sin and sinners, consecrated to God. We are offering to God spiritual service and worship, acceptable to God through Jesus.

It is the Christians, wherever we may be that are an holy nation. We are God's peculiar people, we weren't always this way as we came out of darkness into the light.

I feel honored that God has chosen me to be one of His. At times when I feel I can't do the things He would have me do all I have to do is pray for His guidance. I know He will help me with whatever I ask. This doesn't mean that I won't have any struggles with whatever it is that He wants me to do but it means that He will help me.

Mark 10:27; "And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." I know He will never ask me to do something that I can not do as whatever He asks of me He will show me the way to do it. He will never ask me to do something that He won't help me with.

Being a child of the Lord we should go out and tell the world about the Gospel. We are to open the eyes of the lost that are blinded by Satan. Some people are lost and they don't know it and unless they are told about the Light how will they know? Satan is the ruler of the world and those that do not know the Lord are under his control. Satan works in sinners and the ones that are disobedient to the Lord. We need to turn these people away from Satan. It is the statement of the gospel with the power of the Spirit that will deliver people from the power of Satan and turn them to Christ. Knowing Christ and having faith in Him and asking for forgiveness is when they will receive forgiveness for their sins. Being forgiven and being delivered from the state of sin and Satan they will now have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit , they will be set apart from the world and will now live for God and be in fellowship with those of us that are saved by faith in Christ.

Whenever we feel we can not help someone that doesn't know the Lord just remember, what is impossible for us is possible with God.

If someone says you are a peculiar person just think to yourself "I am so glad I am a peculiar person as that means I belong to Christ." Praise the Lord.

Thank you for stopping by and may you know the peace of the Lord. Blessings!
