Reading Verse: Exodus 5:1-24
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.
1 Peter 2:9
We are God’s special people because He has chosen and called us. When He calls us, He has a special purpose, so we have to respond to His calling. One purpose of God’s calling is wherever we are, we can become His witness through our words, works and attitudes. Remember that we are like an open book, in which everyone can see and judge us. Therefore, we have to watch our attitudes, so that wherever we are, we can bring light of Christ. We also have to avoid everything that against the Word of God, and live accordingly with His word.
God call us with a purpose, so we can serve. Jesus said that the child of God came not to be served, but to serve. And God has given us talent or capability that we can use to serve Him, so we can’t just stay still. When we serve God, He will provide us so we will be able to serve Him. Thus, we have to serve God, whether at church or wherever God has placed us.
In addition, God calls us to bring a positive impact and to be a blessing to others. When people around us are in hard situations, it is our job to give out the best, whether through our attitudes or our ways to help in order to make the situation better.
God calls us with a purpose so that we are blessed and we can enjoy His blessings. John10:10b says that God has come so that we may have life and have it to the full. So, don’t worry about this life because in Jesus it is certain and guaranteed that He will bless us. God will never let us live in poverty. Because in Jesus, our lives are rest assured.
Therefore, we have to be grateful because we are God’s chosen people, and He loves us so much. Wherever we are, we have to bring the light of Christ through our lives so the name of God is glorified. With Him, we will experience victory.
Wherever we are, we have to bring the light of Christ through our lives
