Title: Have you anything to declare!

Introduction

If you fly oversees you are required after you land to go through customs with your belongings. Everyone going through customs has to make one of two choices. Either you have something to declare or you have nothing to declare!

1.Those who receive God’s mercy become the belongings of God. (V9a)

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God…”

2. Those who receive God’s mercy become the belongings of God and now have something to declare.(v9b)

“That you may declare the praises of him who called us out of darkness into his wonderful light.”(v9b)

3. Those who receive God’s mercy become the belongings of God and now declare the praises of God.(v9b)

”That you may declare the praises of God.”

4. Those who receive God’s mercy become the belongings of God and now declare the praises of God for what he has called them out of. (V9)

“Who called us out of darkness.”

5. Those who receive God’s mercy become the belongings of God and now declare the praises of God not only for what he has called us out of but also for what he has called us into.

“And into his wonderful light.”

6. Those who receive God’s mercy become the belongings of God’s and now declare God’s praises to those outin the world.(V11-12)

“Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.” “Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.”

7. Those who receive God’s mercy become the possessions of God and now declare the praises of God to those out in the world by what we now no longer do. (V11)

“Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.”

8. Those who receive God’s mercy become the possessions of God and now declare the praises of God to those out in the world not only by what we now do not do but also by what we do. (v12)
