You Are Royalty
1 Peter 2:9 (KJB) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
Any person who professes genuine faith in God is a citizen if Heaven and from a line of royalty.
Yes, you, who professes to be a child of God. You are a blood bought child of God. His precious blood was shed so that you can choose to identify with God and be a peculiar person in this world. Now certainly you understand that this does not mean that you stand out as an oddball in this world. Rather it means you stand out as a sincere child of God in pointing to His character and supernatural means rather than anything strange in yourself.
You see, a genuine child of God is a child of His Light standing spiritually firm and brilliant against the dark backdrop found in this wicked world. He or she is a giant spiritual billboard for God. A child of God stands out as a citizen of Heaven, spiritual royalty, set aside for service to God far removed from the dark and wicked nature of the god of this world.
Every genuine child of God is naturally a citizen of Heaven and a pilgrim or stranger in this world. God’s eternal light shines through those He made royal saints for bringing the Light and Truth of Jesus Christ to this evil world.
