“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of the darkness into his marvelous light.” This verse from I Peter 2:9 reminds us that we are on a holy mission. We all want our lives to have meaning. Whether our days on this earth are long or short we want to know that they make a difference, that there is a point, that we have meaning. We are here as representatives, ambassadors as priests of the Holy God who created us. Recognize that truth, know it and live into it and we become tools, instruments of God’s peace. We may affect many lives or maybe just one, that’s up to God. But our lives will have meaning, the highest meaning, holy meaning.
The old Mission Impossible TV series always started with a tape recording that started, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it…” That’s the same message we get from God. “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people so that you can proclaim God’s mighty acts.” You want meaning in your life? Accept your mission.
