Word of the Day... December 21, 2013....

We Are A Chosen Generation
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9

All these special benefits that the Jewish nation once knew as the chosen instrument of God (Exodus 19:5) have now come to the church.  Now you are God’s chosen people.  You are a royal priesthood.  You are a holy nation.  You are to be God’s special people to proclaim the praises of God.  The American Standard Version says, to, “show forth the excellencies of {God}.”  So yours is the privilege, but with that privilege comes the responsibility.

The Jews once had the privilege, but they did not live up to the responsibility.  They didn’t bring forth the fruit that the Father desired. I don’t know about you but I am so excited that the Lord chose us to live in this time.  We, the church have a tremendous responsibility to bring forth the fruit that God longs for in the world today, that we might show forth the praises of our God who called us out of the darkness and into His marvelous light!!!  I hope that you all have a Simply Heavenly day!!!
