    1 Peter 2:9-10, “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

  4. Pray

    “Thank God that he has called each member of your church ‘out of darkness into his wonderful light.’ Take a few moments to thank God for the way in which he called some specific people you know. Pray that your church would increasingly ‘declare the praises’ of God by living distinctively and speaking the good news boldly.” Rachel Jones, 5 Things to Pray for Your Church, p. 13.

And pray that you’d be faithful in speaking and applying God’s word into the lives of those around you,” Rachel Jones, 5 Things to Pray for Your Church, p. 12.
