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. (1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV)
*people for his own possession
*called out of darkness into marvelous light
Look at all the descriptions that apply to those of us God has saved! Does the way that I live match what I am in Christ?
