Here is our weekly update and prayer list.
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” – 1 Peter 2:9-10 (NIV)
God’s created us; we are God’s children. This is more than an individual plan for our lives; it is God’s desire to have a beloved community. To walk alone is cross grain to God’s purposes for our lives. God’s mercy was not to enable us to do our own thing, rather we receive a new identity with other people who are called out by God. Now we stand before God as priests who are brought together, each with the same story of being called into light. Mercy is found and received as we interact within the community – and that is a triune relationship: God-you-me.
