Who are we in Christ?

We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. We are God’s special people. We are sojourners in this land. We were called out of darkness into the light of His glory…for a purpose. His purpose.

Praise His holy name. Be blessed.

God’s mercies are new everyday. What an awesome God we serve!

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; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation. 1 Peter 2:9-12

Like a child waits for his mama – so the children of God wait on Him

Child waiting
Grandson waiting and watching for his mama to get home…
Child missing his mama
My grandson missing his mama and wanting her to get home.

James 5:7-8

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.

Micah 7:7
But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation My God will hear me.

Psalm 27:14
Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.

Be blessed. 

Isaiah 53

Who has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Isaiah 53
