I Peter 2:10 ” Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”

This thought of God’s expression of compassion towards us is first found in Hosea 2:23 and echoed in Romans 9:25-26, “I will call them ‘My people’ who are not My people; I will call her ‘My Loved One’ who is not My loved one.” The Lord has called His Bride – the Church – out of darkness into His wonderful light…calling the Church His Loved One. He has taken pity on our wretchedness and has showered us with undeserved mercy…simply because He loves and treasures us as His own. Thank You Lord for Your compassion!
