1 Peter 2:9 is often used to indicate and encourage our identity as believers. However, as with most aspects of our identity in Christ, it must draw us to a response in order to become an integral part of our life. So if as a royal priesthood, we truly are God's possession, and we are called to proclaim the excellence of He who has called us out darkness into His marvelous light, what would this look like? Are we all called to be missionaries, evangelists, preachers, leaders in the church, or is God able to use people in His plan of redemption in more ways than we may think?

In The Call of Our Identity, Shawn Green, missionary to Italy, challenges us to consider what it means to be the priests of Christ in the world where we live.
