“You are a chosen people…As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9
I look at my Daughter in awe that she knows that she has been born to do incredible things. She is so confident in Christ and her ability to change the world, with what God has called her to do, that it even makes me laugh out loud sometimes. Despite myself being bought up in a generation where children should be “seen and not heard,” I have imparted to her something that Christ wants us all to understand.
All true Christians are one family and we are distinct in this world – God made it that way – because we have been called out of “darkness” into a state of joy, peace and prosperity to give the Lord praise for what He has done and showing others how we should live, in a world that is falling apart around us.
I now understand that I am not supposed to blend into my surroundings but I was born to stand out, so that Christ will be seen in every part of my life.
You too, were born to do the same.
