Remember you are a son/daughter of the King

(William S. Plumer, “Sinners Saved by Unmerited Kindness”)

When a prince was about to travel, he asked his tutor for some maxims by which to govern his behavior.
He received this answer: “Remember that you are the son of a king!

Let all Christians remember that they are the sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty–and “if sons, then heirs, heirs of God, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ!

“You are . . .
a chosen people,
a royal priesthood,
a holy nation,
God’s special possession
–chosen that you may proclaim the excellence of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light!” 1 Peter 2:9
