A CHOSEN GENERATION
The word “generation” is derived from the root-word gene. When God describes us as “a chosen generation,” it means we belong to a new class of human with divine genetic material! We are new creation with God’s DNA in us. No wonder the Bible in Romans 8:37 says we are more than conquerors. Our lineage is one of champions and victors. We have new genes that came from our heavenly Father. This is the reason Jesus died; to produce a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people, a holy nation – a new class of being. You belong in that new class, the kingly race in Christ.
This identity ring is your royal signet ring, identifying you as a son or daughter of the King. With it, you announce your adoption into heaven’s family, the fair seal of love is upon your forehead, His ring of faithfulness is upon your hand – you are now a child of the Most High and no weapon formed against you shall prosper.
"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people."
- 1 Peter 2:9 -
