thought for the day

I Peter 2:4-10

….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.

People – plural. Our journey of faith is not individual. We may enter this journey at different points with different stories but we do not walk it alone. There may well be places in the world where the reality is that you have no choice, you cannot met freely with others. But here we have the freedom to gather daily if we so wished. We can gather in homes, in church buildings and stand together and praise Him who has called us. Let us praise Him in the company of saints and give thanks that we have been called to a people, to a family in which no one need be alone.
