People of God


This week I have continued my slow journey through 1 Peter. This is a fascinating time for me as I reflect on these truths for my life.

Peter is toward the end of his life. He shares with us what is really important.

Yesterday I spent some time pondering this passage:

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Pt. 2:9-11)

This passage tells you and me who we are in God’s eyes. Take a few minutes to ponder how He views us.

Here are a few questions for reflection:

  1. Which of these descriptions is most encouraging to me?
  2. Which one is most challenging?
  3. Which description is most hopeful?
  4. How does He want me to respond?
  5. Take a few minutes to thank Him.
