Be Still . . .
Devotionals for Daily Living

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
(1 Peter 2:9 (NRSV))

God did not send His Son to be our salvation so that we can continue to do the things we did when still under the Law. God has called us out of our sin to a new way of life. A way of life that He has planned for us so that will be an example to others.

Once we have accepted Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, we are unique. We are different from the unbelieving world in which we live. We are to be the hands and feet of Jesus in reaching and teaching the world about God’s love.

We must remember that a priest is God’s representative to the people, and, at the same time, is the people’s representative to God. It is a part of the call that God has upon our lives after we accept His grace and mercy through Jesus Christ. We have accepted a new position in life, a new job description.

If you were to have a job review in this new position, how well would you rate in this capacity?
