Who are you?
Are you a mom? A dad? A husband? A wife? Son or daughter? Friend? Co-worker? Employee? Employer?
Yes. Today, we are all these things. We are teachers and students, administrators, neighbors, and teammates.
Today, we each wear a lot of hats in our lives. We each “do” a lot of things, we each “are” a lot of things.
But, who are you? Who are we?
Listen to what Peter writes today in 1 Peter 2:9-10. And listen like you’ve never heard this before:
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. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Once you (we) were not a people. Now you (we) are His. We are His. We are His people. We are His children. We belong to Him. He has claimed us as His own.
That’s who you are. That’s who we are. We are His.
That’s the label that matters more than any other label. That’s the hat that matters more than any other hat. That’s what defines who you are.
Above all else. You are His. You are His child. You are loved by an amazing God.
Never forget that. Never forget who you are. Never forget whose you are.
You are a child of God. Never forget.
