Name Tags: You Are... (Part 20)
A Chosen Generation
Your troops will be willing
On Your day of battle.
Arrayed in holy splendor,
Your young men will come to You
Like dew from the morning's womb.
Psalm 110:3 (NIV)
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.
John 15:16-17 (NKJV)
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; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
1 Peter 2:9-10 (NKJV)
What does it mean to be chosen by God? It's the greatest blessing in all the world and the greatest responsibility. What would it mean if Jesus came back now? It would be the greatest moment ever seen amidst the world's climactic conclusion.
Actors, models and talent for Christ: As the Lord's chosen generation, what are your responsibilities?
