1 Peter 2:9

DaySpring Daily Word of Inspiration: 1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Today we look at and focus on many labels. We are proud of the labels we wear, the titles we have at our jobs and the status we carry in society. We especially like to make sure people know when we are of a distinguishing allure. People naturally hold these types of things in one regard or another but we know that these labels are but for a short time. Our designer clothes will fade. We may lose our jobs or position at a company. We may even fall from the grace of those who once held us in such high esteem.

There are many labels that we want to last, so how are you treating the label that God has given you? Did you know as a child of God; a true brother of Jesus that you are royalty? God has taken of himself and placed that inside of us so that our bodies are now temples. God has given you an amazing label.

If you are a true believer, you are considered to be a member of the royal family. When we have our labels here on earth, we are diligent to take care of them. We try to act the part in which our label would allude to and even carry a certain air about ourselves because of the labels placed on us.

Well, how are you taking care of the label God has given you? Are you trying to make it look good? Are you trying to live up to the meaning of what your label in God’s kingdom is? Are you careless with the label that God gave you? Do you make your label (and in turn God’s Kingdom) look bad because you don’t act like someone who has such a label of royalty? Lastly, with your label in Christ, your new identity, do others see the new you and how you’re grateful for a better opportunity or do they see the same old you just with a new label?

It’s funny, but when we get something new we EXPECT people to see that new thing immediately when they see us. The problem is that they will always only see the same you if you don’t display to them there’s something different about you today……

Who are you going to tell about Jesus today and how he made you different for eternity? People will always see you as you are until you give them some other reason to know that there is something different about you.

We pray that you let your new God-given label shine and be known to all who see you. Let’s get others excited about their ability to change spiritual labels and act like the royalty that we are given in Christ Jesus. Give God the praise for allowing you to be chosen. Not everyone will be allowed to the royal ball; but if you’re one who’s been chose to come…..act accordingly. Have a great day all. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
