The Power of Chosen…
Isaiah 61:3 (NIV) To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
1 Peter 2:9-10 (NIV) You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God.
1. A Chosen people
“In Royalty you are either chosen into or or born into it- WE ARE BOTH!”
James 1:18 (NLT) He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.
2-A Royal Priesthood
“When you were picked it was for a purpose it was on purpose.”
3- A Holy Nation
HE Calls us out.
HE Calls us in.
HE Calls us to.
4. A people belonging to God.
1 Peter 2:9-10 (NIV) Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God.
"When we realize that we belong to God It changes our perspective, It guides our behavior & It empowers our purpose."
