The apostle Peter said, “You are a chosen people. You are royal priests.” And our focus for today, Peter continued and said, “[You are] a holy nation.” And what does holy mean? Peter was saying that as followers of Jesus, you are so different. You are different from the world. You are different from the person that you used to be. Today we learn that after you start following Jesus, you are no longer the same. Instead, you are changed by God.
