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: 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. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify GOD in the day of visitation. (1 Peter 2:9-12)
We, as His children are to live our lives so that those outside the Church will see Jesus in us and be drawn to Him. They may say all manner of things against us because of their war with GOD, but they should be able to acknowledge the difference GOD makes in your life, even if they claim they don't believe in Him.
Is your life and walk with GOD such today that others are thirsty for the Living Water? Do you know the Word so you can minister as one of GOD's priests? Is your faith visible and active so that those around you want what you have? GOD calls you to a life of sacrifice and holiness which glorifies Him, and to praise Him for who He is and what He has done for you.
For the unbeliever, who is not in Christ, while GOD is calling you and you have been chosen, you have not yet responded by Faith, you are not yet a part of this nation. GOD is not willing that any should perish and calls everyone everywhere to repent, that is surrender to Him on His terms. He loves you and wants what is best for you, He wants you to receive Him today. Seek His mercy and grace that you will have hope in this world through the blood of Jesus Christ shed on that cross of Calvary for you.
I pray that whatever GOD is calling you to do, you will respond in Faith and say yes, Lord today.
