Inutile (1 Peter 2.1-10)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “inutile.”  We live in a pretty crazy world.  There are always people ready to judge everything that we do, both good and bad.  Social media puts everything out in the open for others to see and scrutinize, at every turn.  We would be led to believe that life can sometimes be meaningless or passing without significance.  However, the next time you feel inutile, that you are of no use or service to this intensely critical world, remember that God has called you to be special and for a purpose.

“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.” ~1 Peter 2:9

My question is: when is the last time you thanked God for allowing you to be part of this holy nation of his?  We are always pretty busy taking care of the issues life throws at us, and oftentimes just trying to stay afloat.  We must continue to remember that we belong to God, and as long as we proclaim his name then we are on the right track.  My prayer is that you remember today that God has called you into his marvelous light.

Praying for you,
