Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.1 Peter 2:10
We Are God’s People
We are God’s people. He has given us a new identity. Some people search their entire lives for identity and purpose. God gave you an identity and purpose at the moment of salvation. You do not have to search for meaning; you have a new meaning. You are God’s people. We are God’s people. We can live in his presence because we have received his mercy. Our sin has been washed away. We are clean in his sight.
Next time you find yourself in a broken place, take heart that you were created with a purpose and have been chosen as one of God’s people. You can live and act as though you have a higher purpose.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for giving me a purpose and an identity. May I serve you and fulfill that purpose. Amen.
