Key Verse

“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” 1 Peter 2:9

Text — 1 Peter 2:9-12


Claire was chosen with four other pupils to represent her school in a quiz competition.
When they got to the event venue, they met pupils from other schools also. Many of the pupils were chattering loudly and were all over the place. They were all excited at the beautiful things around them, not remembering that they were supposed to comport themselves (behave well) as ambassadors of their schools. Claire, a friend of Jesus, sat quietly, observing things going on and also admiring the beauty of the environment.
These pupils did not realise that they were being watched by the Head of School whose office was close to where they sat.
Suddenly, they heard a voice call out to them to minimize their noise making, the woman also moved closer and went straight to where Claire sat and started asking her questions.
She had noticed that Claire’s behaviour was different from the others – she brought honour to the name of Christ. Eventually, she was presented with a gift for her good behaviour. As a friend of Jesus, you are different from the children of the world. Let you character portray Christ-likeness everywhere you go. You belong to a chosen generation and a royal priesthood.
