But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Scripture Reference: 1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)

The Word of God says you are of royal priesthood, you are a holy nation and you are royalty. But, do you really know who you are?

Child of God, never doubt yourself, you have an identity, a mission and a useful purpose here on earth. You belong to the church of Christ, the church that shall last forever. This is the church that Jesus said the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18).

Beloved, this gives you assurance that there is no witch, sorcerer or a diviner that can stand against you and prevail. You are God's elect, chosen to be a testimony to the world that God lives. You are chosen to display the power of God to the world. You are chosen to walk in power and in authority. You are chosen so that God can confirm His word to the world through you.

You are royalty and a peculiar person because you are special to God. As a peculiar Christian you are separated and different from the world. You are not supposed to live anyhow. You are not supposed to relate with everyone, talk anyhow and you are not supposed to listen or watch everything. You cannot be found in fornication, adultery or cohabitation.

Sin should never be accommodated in your life for it will defile you. Child of God, how you conduct your life matters to God because you were bought with a price (1 Corinthians 7:23). You were called out of darkness to light, washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus so you can offer sacrifices of praise to Him.

Many people do not have a purpose in life. They get involved in things that do not benefit the Kingdom of God. You on the other hand know who you are; you know what you are called for. You are called for holiness. You were picked up amongst many people. Thus never go back to the life you used to live before you knew Christ. Refuse to get stuck in the life of “yesterday”, a life where you suffered greatly in the hands of the enemy benefiting nothing.

Be separated for you belong to a holy nation, a nation of power that is spirit filled.
