Memory Verse

1 Peter 2:9

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.

Have you ever been chosen to do something special? Time for a Bible Quiz! Match these Bible people with what God chose them to do:

1. SamuelKing2. SolomonSeamstress3. EstherSpokesman, Leader4. MosesQueen5. DorcasPriest, Prophet

How did you do? Samuel was chosen by God when he was a young boy. Because he listened to God, Samuel was both God's prophet to the Israelites and the Israelite's priest before God. Solomon was the king who asked God for wisdom. God answered his request and gave him wealth and animals and peace along with great wisdom. Esther was a Jewish girl who not only became Queen but also saved all the Jews living in her country. Moses was the spokesman for Israel to Pharaoh. He led the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt and to the land God promised. Dorcas served God by making clothes for the poor people in her city.

None of these Bible people decided one day that they were going to do something great for God. God chose them to do the work he planned for them to do. They simply obeyed God's call. It's going to be the same for you-God will choose you for something special because he loves you so much. Will you obey God's call? Will you be ready?

Chosen. It's a great word. Today, celebrate and enjoy being chosen by God to be his very own child!
