Here is the Daily Dose for Wednesday, May 6, 2020.
But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
Coming back home for the first time is almost like an out of body experience. No matter if you were off at college, backpacking through Europe, or at basic training the feeling is the same. You have been with you the whole time so you feel the same, but everyone who sees you remarks about how different you are. They always say they can’t quite put their finger on it, but there is just something different about you. You may have put on a few pounds, or grown a few inches, but that is not what they are talking about. They mean that you have changed.
What we don’t realize is we are going through it is experiences change us. What we see, know, learn, and go through change who we are. Sometimes those experiences change us for the better, if we are not careful, they will sometimes change us for the worse. What we do know is they will change us and others will see it.
Friends, people should see a different us when we give our lives to God. When we become God’s chosen people we are brought into a royal priesthood and become part of a holy nation. We become people who are transformed from who we are into who we should be. That transformation takes place on the inside but it can be seen on the outside. It can be seen in how we walk, how we talk, and how we act. We become living testimonies to what God can do, and who he can make us. So know this, we are chosen by God and when he chose us he made us different. So walk in the light so others can see what God can do.
