1 Peter 2:10

God’s Promise- “I have chosen you to be a royal priesthood and a holy nation.”

It seems ancestry kits are all the rage. With the availability of DNA  testing, people are eager to trace their roots. As Christians, we don’t need a swab and a test tube to tell us who we are. For we need look no further than the Bible to find our ancestors. Because once we receive Jesus as our Savior, we become grated into God’s chosen race. A race with no color, or ethnicity. An inclusive race of brothers and sisters in Christ called by God as His own possession. Once we wandered through life alone, belonging to no one, and serving our own desires. But now, like the Israelites, we belong to God. We are all one people, one nation, whose citizenship is in heaven. A royal priesthood and holy nation, set apart for God’s glory. Right now Jesus is preparing a permanent home where we will all, as one family, dwell with Him for eternity. We will forever be His people, and He will forever be our God.
