Are You a Royal Prince or Princess?

124
I have often through the years heard believers in Christ proclaim how wonderful, and important, it is to receive and partake and enjoy the incredible blessings of being so-called royalty because we have been adopted through faith in Jesus Christ into the Kingdom of God. “We’re royalty! We’re princes and princesses!” people have told me, encouraging me to see myself as God’s princess and to therefore thrive and to appreciate the gifts of being royalty. They have encouraged me to see myself as a daughter of the most high God, and to enjoy being His princess. Admittedly, I have fallen short of living the abundant life promised me in Christ. And truthfully, I have often seen myself through eyes other than God’s – i.e. not exactly a princess!

But at the same time, I wonder how many people who speak of the wonders of being royalty in God’s Kingdom realize that God’s Word has a job for His royalty to do such that sitting around polishing one’s prince or princess crown and calling on one’s servants to bring in the newspaper and prepare a five-course kingly breakfast might not fit so well with. God’s royal priesthood of Christ followers are God’s possession, and this belonging to God comes with a life-saving assignment. We are called to “proclaim” the Lord who delivered us out of darkness to the world at large! This does not mean that God does not want us to enjoy our lives, but it does mean that we have a purpose above all else – to love Him with all our hearts, to love others, and to share the good news of Jesus the Christ with the world. Something tells me some of His princes and princesses might need a reminder from time to time that it’s time to get out of the palace and reach out with the Gospel to a broken world in dire need of Christ.

9But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 10Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” 1 Peter 2:9-10 ESV

    my iPɑd and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPaɗ is now broken and
    shе has 83 views. I know this is entirely off

  39. Μy deνеloper is tryіng to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have alѡays disliҝed the idea because of the expensеs.

    But he’s trүiong none the lesѕ. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a yeaг and am concerned about sԝitching to
    another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly aрpreciated!

  40. Ꮤow! This blog looks just like my old one!

    Its very well written; I love what youve
    g᧐t to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so peօple could connect witһ it bеtter.
    Youve got an awful lot оf text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could ѕpɑce it out better?

  42. Thanks for saying so Arun! I’m unsure about FamilyClix because it is a PTC site I have no experience with – I only trust Neobux these days…

  43. I really like your writing style, great info, thank you for putting up :D. “I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am.” by Joseph Baretti.

  45. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with
    a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
    so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Bless you!

    mates concerning this paragraph, while I am also eager of getting know-how.

  49. We admire poker gamers who produced on their own to the leading, winning each match they get in. All the twisting and touching will make the individuals much more comfortable, and ready to discover horizons.

  52. This is not easily achievable as you may currently know it. They devise an experiment where I use power on my parrots. Tory for a second and look at a possible origin. Sure, the quantity of cash produced is nearly obscene!

  53. Hi Dear, are you actually visiting this website on a regular basis, if so after that you will definitely get fastidious experience.

  54. All he cares about is stretching his revenue, aside from income from function or other company actions. In some cases simply knowing whether or not you are the favourite or the underdog is sufficient.

  56. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say great blog!

  57. Great review on Neobux. i have heard a lot about it and even tried it myself. But the pay off is very little. I never knew there was a strategy that could be adopted to earn quite a lucrative amount of money on daily basis.i will give this strategy a try and see how it works out for me.

  58. Un muy buen post que aborda el concepto de la astroturfing. Su definición explica con qué facilidad algunas personas o lugares pueden ver la promoción de un producto que simplemente no está a la altura de lo que se dice.Me parece que ha abordado un tema que ha sido y definitivamente todavía se está haciendo a través de Internet para hacer que un producto suene tan bien cuando ni siquiera vale la pena el tiempo que se tarda en leerlo.Comprador sea ware!

  59. The online casinos offer free bonus game slot machines that enable the gamblers to win real cash bonus. You have to understand that there are a number of casinos that offer this service on the internet. To know more about it you can read the blogs and reviews written by the casino’s customers or check with the casino’s online casinos that are associated with the slot machine business. A good online casino should be well known for providing the best casinos and bonus games. You should also read the bonus news that is provided to you by the online casinos so that you will be aware with any new update in the bonus game slot machines.

  61. Most of what you mention happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. But at this time there is just one issue I am not too cozy with and while I try to reconcile that with the core idea of your issue, permit me see just what the rest of your subscribers have to point out.Well done.

  62. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

  63. Chris – como mencioné en mi comentario e historia en tu página de Rodan y Fields, no podría estar más de acuerdo contigo en todo el asunto de MLM. En algún momento pensarías que estas cosas simplemente se extinguirían, pero supongo que todo lo que hacen es empezar otra. Con productos, inventarios, entregas, ventas, etc., hay mucho trabajo para la gente aquí. La gran ventaja que este parece tener es la conexión del nombre con Swarovski – tenemos algo de ese cristal en nuestra casa (como estoy seguro que muchos lo hacen). Pero, es MLM (**laptops slamming shut**).Gracias de nuevo por dar una gran reseña y evitar que pierda mi tiempo con este.

  64. Okay but you’re going to have to contribute more than that if you want me to leave your backlink in your comment mate – I wasn’t born yesterday!

  65. Hi Tasos,No, once you’ve upgraded you will not get a chance to try the tool out again for free unless you use a separate email account ( it’s not a free option – it’s a trial after all! )

  66. This is nonsense. If 80 of newcomers never login again, what do I get renting referrals? I will just lose my money and that’s why PTC ‘industry’ still exists. They want everyone paying like a ponzi scheme.“dedicate AT LEAST two hours of the day to studying and maintaining your rented referrals ”Are there so many things to do?? :-O

  67. Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just too wonderful. I actually like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it sensible. I cant wait to read much more from you. This is really a great site.

  68. Hi! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
