A Chosen Generation

1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: [10] Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
 
Once we trust Christ as our Savior, we become a part of a new people: the family of God. We are now children of God (John 1:12). As children of God, we are also described as a chosen generation. we are chosen by God to represent Him to this world. We are a royal priesthood with direct access to God at all times. We are a holy nation and a peculiar people. We are a special people that belong to Almighty God. We, then, ought to live life as the children of God chosen to represent Him to this world. Our actions everyday ought to convey to those around us who we are.
