“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 NIV
We are special. We are chosen. We are royal.
Has anyone ever made you feel special? Not just kind of special. I’m talking over the top, out of this world, giddy with excitement special. The kind that gives you butterflies in your stomach and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Multiply that times a gazillion and you still don’t even come close to how special we are to God. It’s hard to comprehend!
So why don’t we celebrate more? How do we treat the people that make us feel special? I usually go out of my way to schedule time with them. I miss it when I don’t talk with them. I seek their input and like to partner with them in work and play. We laugh together. We hug each other and cry together. We anticipate getting together with excitement. It’s wonderful when it’s mutual. That is the very best.
We have that VIP invitation whenever we want. So let the celebration begin….
