"But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted." 
1 Peter 2:9

If you have trusted Christ as your savior you are one of his "chosen ones."  Chosen for a task that will change the world.  In our day few have clarity of what they were saved for, but it's not just to get YOU out of hell and into heaven, it's to be his priest, his people, his instrument, his voice to speak to a dying world and tell them where you found life, where they can find it as well.

How odd it is that we Christians have no idea of our tasks, our calling. Many of us live like everyone around us and have no idea, no vision of what God has designed us to do.  But his new identity for us is one that changes eternity in the lives of those we speak to about him.

Do you know that you have been chosen to be part of a plan that changes the eternity of those around you?  Do you realize how important that job is?  How could we think it's just about getting our sins forgiven and not about changing the world? 

You were chosen to be part of God's amazing plan designed from eternity past.  Do you realize how glorious that is, how wonderful it is?  And you thought you weren't that important, didn't you?  

But God has chosen you to be part of a plan that will change eternity!
