See, I am doing a new thing! Isaiah 43:19 (NKJV).
Once you join the family of God, you are a new creation in Christ. All the old things in your life were buried with Christ when he went to the grave for humanity. You are now part of the Royal Family of God.
- You are a citizen of heaven, in the world, but not of the world.
- You are a royal priesthood, chosen of God, unique to Him, and a queen in His kingdom.
While reading this, if you choose Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are set free today and automatically become a part of the Royal Family!
Therefore, walk, talk, and act like a citizen of heaven. Stroll regally, royally, and priestly with your head held high and shoulders straight.
Isaiah 55:6-8 (NIV) tells us to: Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, who will have mercy on them, and to our God, for He will surely pardon. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.
God is in total control! He gives you limited ‘free will,’ but He has already put a plan in place for redeeming you from the sin in your life and adopting you into His kingly family.
When will you start walking, talking, and acting like royalty?
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV).
