Finding Home: Live as Priests - 1 Peter 2:1-10
God often calls the weak and broken things of this world and transforms them to influence the world for His kingdom. Even in the midst of some of the greatest challenges in our lives, God reminds us that we have incredible value. It’s easy to allow circumstances to keep us from making a difference, but God calls us despite everything. 1 Peter 2:9 says,
“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.” It’s our responsibility to respond and follow His leading."
As we gather to worship, we are reminded of the greatness and power of our God. It’s through His strength that we are made brave to go where He leads. When all around gives way, our firm foundation is found in Christ. He alone is our hope and stay. Let’s declare His praise and ask for the strength to live out our calling as His chosen people.
