1 Peter 2:9 (ESV) But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
You have been chosen by God as his very own. He chose you for his own precious possession and you have been called to represent him to the world. He redeemed you from sin and delivered you from the darkness of death and brought you into the light of salvation through Christ, therefore you have been chosen, called, consecrated, anointed, appointed and set apart. Because Jesus is royalty, you are royalty, too.
You are a member of God’s royal family, so secure your royal position and take your rightful place in the family. You have to know who you are. You have to know your position in his kingdom in order to secure you royal inheritance. You must know your assignment and answer the calling that’s on your life.
You are joint heirs with Christ. An heir is a partaker of the benefits that come with the gift of salvation. Jesus did not die for Himself but died for our benefits. Therefore, we are partakers of our Father’s inheritance. As a royal priesthood, you possess the same authority and, in that authority, you are charged to strengthen your brother and sister. You have to look out for one another, check on one another, lift up one another and speak life over one another, because we have the power to speak those things that are not as though they were so use your power.
Jesus has put all things under his feet so you must learn to operate in the same power and authority that Jesus has given you which is above all principality, power, dominion and every name that is named, not only in this day and time but also in the days to come.
