For believers, there’s no greater joy, no greater privilege than knowing you’re God’s own possession—that He chose you by sovereign election and paid the price of your redemption through the sacrifice of His own Son, Jesus Christ.
First Peter 2:4–10 dwells on the spiritual privileges God has bestowed on His people. Consider your union with Christ and resultant membership in the priesthood of all believers. The honor of offering sacrifices of gratitude to God for the redemptive work of Christ. The habits of expressing that gratitude with your lips, your labor, and your life.
While counting the cost of discipleship, don’t lose sight of the riches God has already made yours. Join John MacArthur to study this beloved passage in The Believer’s Privileges.
