A Chosen Generation
“9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; ” 1 Peter 2:9 NKJV
We’re all God’s children;
A Chosen Generation;
A royal priesthood for the Father—
A holy and special relation.
God has gifted us the talents
To represent Him here;
He’s called us out of darkness;
His marvelous light to share.
We are all equipped for ministry;
We’re God’s ambassadors.
The Devil would like you to believe differently;
It tells us in God’s scriptures.
We are here to serve others—
This Chosen Generation.
When we’re connected to the Lord,
We’ll gladly join His ministration.
By serving God and others
Our blessings will abound.
Great satisfaction and joy,
In such serving can be found.
Whether you preach a sermon
Or bake a pie for a stranger,
Both are important to God,
And considered His ministerial labor.
This Chosen Generation is important
In the finishing of God’s harvest.
Complex or simple labor,
By all must be confessed.
We must all work together—
Both the young and old.
It’s through us God reaches others,
To bring forth saints of gold.
