1 Peter 2:9b-10
“…for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests,<sup class="footnote" value="[f]”> a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. ‘Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.<sup class="footnote" value="[g]”>'”
<sup class="footnote" value="[g]”> God can use our testimonies–what He has done through us–in order to show His goodness to others. We are His–royal, important, beautiful.
