A. Who is doing the choosing?God Has choosen us Picked us out.

B. Deuteronamy 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

C. Eph. 1: 3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

B. Who is being chosen? We are Generation Christ.

V. 10 We were not a people but, now are the people of God!!!

We went from a people with out God’s mercy To a people with God’s mercy.

II. A Royal Priesthood

A. Before the law The preist hood was the head of the household Gen.8:20 Noah

B. Under the law the priesthood was the levites

C. After the law we live in a time of grace when Jesus died for our sins the veil of the temple was torn from the top to the bottom allowing all to see inside the holy place.

D. One of the advantages of being a priest is direct communication with God. (only once a year for the high priest And even then he had to be consencrated by the blood one the right thumb, great toe and right ear)

Priest had several jobs

E. Responsible for offering sacrifices (Jesus gave the ultiment sacrifice so what can we give)

What can we offer God as a scrifice?

1. The living body. Rom 12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2. how do I present my body as a living sacrifice?

A. WITNESS Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

LIVE FOR HIM Rom. 6:1-4 1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? {were: or, are}

4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

3. Sacrifice of praise. Heb 13:15 15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. (continually)
