Out of Darkness, Into the Light

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. (1 Peter 2:9)

Sometimes, when you feel overwhelmed, it helps to remember that you are chosen by God, through grace, to inherit eternal life — to be part of His special people.

Then as you face unrelenting rejection and failures in this world, you know, understand and believe that you are accepted by God, always. Not because of your abilities, status or even character — but by the amazing grace and the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.

And then, as the days go by and this understanding takes root, remember that you are chosen to not only receive but also to share this gift and blessing with those in darkness, just as you are in now.
