But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, the people who are God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. At one time you were not a people, but now you are the people of God. At one time you were not shown mercy, but now you have been shown mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10 EHV)
Hymn ELH 592 Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the mercies You shower on me each day and for making me a part of Your chosen race, the Christian Church. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
