DAILY DEVOTION - APRIL 23
Listen to today's daily devotion on this video.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous Light.
I Peter 2:9
Of all things, we are chosen, royal and holy, so says our epistle lesson for today. As such we are God’s own people, made so by the Light of the World, Jesus. We are saved so by His grace and power over sin and death, the One Who calls us out of darkness and into the Light. In that illumination, we see and declare the wonderful deeds of our God Who creates, saves and sanctifies us for the life of the world to come. Thanks be to God!
Let us pray with our CPC sisters and brothers . . .
We acknowledge, O God, Your royalty and Your holiness, and thank You for covering us in Your qualities of majesty. You have chosen us long before we have chosen to be Your disciples, for You call us Your children, Your heirs, and Your joy. May we declare the wonderful deeds we never could do, and may we live in the joy of Your mercy that draws us into Your Light. Lead us out of the darkness that envelops us in this time of crisis and help us look for the Light that is You. Amen.
