《Today’s spiritual meditation》: : “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1Pe 2:9)
Meditation one: Do you feel that it is an honor for you to be a disciple of Christ? God values us and redeems us through the precious blood of Jesus Christ (1:19) in order to sanctify us out of this world. Now, in the eyes of God, we are “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession.” Thank God, because we have the new status, identity, and value in Christ. In this world we become the messengers of Christ, and representatives of God. He is proud of us.
Meditation two: Since we have the honorable status in this world, then what responsibility should we take? It is for us to accomplish God’s exalted will, so that the praises of God can be declared by us, so the name of God can be glorified. Our value is not from our own accomplishments, but from the status as God’s children; not because of what we do, but because of what God has done.
Prayer: God, thank You! I used to be in the world of darkness, it is Your grace and mercy brought me into Your glorious kingdom of light. Because of Your calling and glorious entrustment, I am willing to live out Your divine nature, Your glory, and Your holiness. Please always fill me with the Holy Spirit and guide me. No matter where I am, I wish can reveal Your glory in all things. I pray in the precious name of Jesus. Amen!
