But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
– 1 Peter 2:9-10
I’m fairly certain that if I looked back at my comments on this chapter from the last several years, I probably default to these two verses when we come to it. They are important verses that present vital truth to us.
God’s will, and your calling as His own special people, is to declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness and into His marvelous light, making you His people, bestowing upon you His great mercy.
