“But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.”
1 Peter 2:9-12 NLT
You are called and chosen to live in the world but to be different, peculiar, set apart and holy so that you can show Christ to others through your daily life - a life that is real, not fake or pretend. People want to see you deal with pressure, and with loss. They want to see you walk by faith and call out to God, because deep down inside, they want to believe… We need to preach with out words.
