And now, if you will diligently listen to me and keep my covenant, then you will be my special possession out of all the nations, for all the earth is mine, and you will be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you will speak to the Israelites.”
Exodus 19:5-6 NET
God is always reminding His people that the best thing for then is to be right in the middle of His will!
He always reminds His people that if they follow His commands, they will be blessed.
Jesus said the same thing. He said, “if you love me, you will keep my commands.’
God knows that for His people, that is the best place to be.
And, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world. The whole world is His. It belongs to Him. He can blesses You anywhere.
And then, He says we are a special type of people, a kingdom of priests.
Priests led the people into worship. They trained people in how to worship Him. They helped others draw closer to God!
While we live for Him and obey His commands, we also have a responsibility to show others what it is like to be His special possession.
We should start our days with the understanding that we will be an example, pointing others to a Holy God and the blessings that entails.
You will influence the people around you. If you are a Believer, you should influence others for Jesus.
Father, thank You that I can be counted as Your special possession. Help me to shine my light for You.
