A Holy Nation

April 18th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

We are called to be a holy nation (1 Pet. 2:9). Holy means, among other things, “set apart” and recognizably different. God’s covenant with Israel was to set Israel apart as a light for the nations to draw all back to God (Is. 49:6). In Christ we are called to be that light, which means that Christians are called to be visibly and recognizably different from the people around us. But not just recognizable; recognizable in a way that draws people to God. We are to be recognizable like Mother Teresa, not like Westboro Baptist Church.
