Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

chosen for God's story

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)


By your grace you have freed us from a self-centered life... a life where we tend to give you only a bit part in our stories. Yet you have written us into your big story of every-nation redemption and cosmic renewal. We're not choice; we're chosen; we're not royal, but we've been reborn into the eternally royal family; we're holy in ourselves, but perfectly holy in Christ.

We are no longer our own, but instead are your possession. Hallelujah! And for the rest of our lives and throughout eternity, we have been given the privilege of declaring the power of your grace and the wonders of your love. We never want to go back to our silly little stories where we chase after personal peace and affluence! We desire your peace and your plan. 

We want to live into the much bigger story you have for us.
