But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. (1 Peter 2:9–10 The Message)
Can you imagine if we truly grasped this? We are chosen by God. We are God’s instruments to do His work and speak for Him. Wow! It’s almost too much to take in. As parents, we have the privilege of transferring this truth to our children! We get to share with them that God is our King and He invites us into His royal family to partner with Him in His work on earth.
Our hope is that this issue of HomeFront will be a great resource to you as you impart this truth to your children.
The world tries hard to discredit our identity as God’s holy people and offers our children a false understanding of who they are—in fact, the battle for their identity can be an all-out war. But with the help of the Holy Spirit and the faithful prayers of parents and grandparents, our children will have the power “to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.”
