But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
(NIV) 1 Peter 2:9-10
FOUR PILLARS OF GODLY SELF-ESTEEM
1. You are acceptable (v. 9, “a chosen People”).
2. You are valuable (v. 9, “a people for His possession”).
3. You are capable (v. 9, “a royal priesthood”).
4. You are forgivable (v. 9-10).
