You Are Royalty

Most people yearn to be accepted by others, but we were not meant to fit in. As children of the living God, we were made to stand out. Not to draw attention to ourselves, but to live the kind of life that brings glory and draws others to Him.

It is our choices that we make every day that paves the way to life. God will not force us to do anything. He has given us free will to walk closely with Him or walk away from Him. We are royalty – sons and daughters of our Father the King. We can put our crown on at any time and let others know that we belong to Him.

We have a royal call on our lives. God’s Word declares it. We need to remember that we wear the crown of everlasting life, and through us, He can do abundantly more than we could ever image.

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:91 Peter 2:9

"Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him."
2 Timothy 2:11-12

“And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.” 1 Peter 5:4 (NIV)

"I'm on my way; I'll be there soon. Keep a tight grip on what you have so no one distracts you and steals your crown.” Revelation 3:11 (The Message)
