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.
So, God called us for us to be able to get out from the darkness life that we live in. He cleans us from the mud of life. From unclean life because of sin to clean life because we are forgiven. We are beyond blessed if we are one of the people of God to be His beloved. As the bible says found in Matthew 20:16 " Many are called, few are chosen".
The man that is already in the light of God is his privilege because he already knows where he would go.
God did this simply because He wants us to live in His place which is heaven. He doesn't like that His people will be going to hell. He wants us to be saved from bad things.
2 Thessalonians 2:14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our lives should be spent more on sharing the gospel. If there are instances we encounter that we can hear the word of God, let us not reject it. Let us instead listen and reflect on it because God speaks to himself through his words. Thus, by listening, it is possible that it can change our lives, our ways to live as a factor of surviving.
However, listening and reflecting on it will never be a waste of time but a valuable thing that we can do.
Jeremiah 35:15 Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in and I have given to you and your ancestors.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me.
God called us by using His servants like priests and pastors. They spent their time studying the word of God just to deliver and preach the gospel to the congregation and to all of us who wanted to listen and saved us from darkness. They also correct us from our wrong doings to make our life better to live in even if most of the time we cannot understand the happenings around the globe.
Isaiah 55:5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
When Jesus Christ was on earth living with humankind, He sacrificed His own life to mend our lives from broken pieces caused by our sins. That word sin is the ultimate reason why God gave his only Son just for us. He truly loved us. That's why He makes a way to turn our lives to light from darkness and turn away from wicked ways.
This is the message preached by our pastor last sunday. This is all I understood and I love to share it with you. 😇
