Concept of peoplehood

Peoplehood

This concept of peoplehood is firmly rooted in the OT and underlines the objective fact of God’s acting throughout history to call and prepare —

… a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.- 1 Peter 2:9  (Exodus 19:5-6)

God’s agent of the Kingdom must not be considered just one means among many.  For from the cross to eternity it remains true that —

… Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her  to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault.              Ephesians 5:25-27
