1 Peter 2:9-12

9 But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

10 “Once you had no identity as a people;
now you are God’s people.
Once you received no mercy;
now you have received God’s mercy.”
11 Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. 12 Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.


Q: Do you expect God to bless you where you are? Do you know where you are? Are you in a place that God desires you to be? Do you know that no matter where you are, your relationship can come into alignment with Jesus? How would your life change if it was brought into full alignment with His will for your life?

Q: Do you have the mentality that everyone is messing up, so it doesn’t matter what you do? Does that mentality lead you to growth in Christ, or to continual sin? What steps can you take to mature in that mentality and realize that you are set apart?
