1. They are a HOLY people, a gift of God.

For you are a holy people. Deuteronomy 7:6a

It is written: Be holy, because I am holy. 1 Peter 1:16

Without holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God. 1 Peter 3:18

God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21

But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners. Romans 4:5

2. They are a CHOSEN people, in-spite of their lack of a good pedigree.

Of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you. Deuteronomy 7:6b

But you are a chosen people, so that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:13

In love He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will. Ephesians 1:5

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel; 16:7

3. They are a PURCHASE people, valuable only to God.

For you are a holy people, of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you to be His own special treasure. Deuteronomy 7:6

Man, who is born of woman, Is short-lived and full of turmoil. Like a flower he comes forth and withers. He also flees like a shadow and does not remain. Job 14:1,2

Don’t put your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. What good are they? Isaiah 2:22

God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 1 Peter 1:18,19

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19,20

4. They are a LOVED people, and only God knows why.

Rather, it was simply that the Lord loves you, and He was keeping the oath ,that is why the Lord rescued you with such a strong hand from your slavery and from the oppressive hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.. Deuteronomy 7:8

Oh, that I could go away and forget my people and live in a  shack in the desert. For they are all adulterers— a pack of treacherous  robbers and liars. Jeremiah 9:2

He will be quiet in His love, He will calm all your fears. Zephaniah 3:17

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. Romans 5:8

But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) Ephesians 2:4-6
