1 Peter 2:9

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Peter lists four privileges we, as believers, have – 1) a chosen generation, instead of being an earthly race with common ancestry and distinct characteristics, we are a heavenly people with a divine parentage and spiritual resemblances, 2) a royal priesthood, we can enter into the sanctuary of heaven by faith to worship, offer up spiritual sacrifices, and proclaim the excellencies of God, 3) a holy nation, we are to be distinguished by holiness, and 4) a peculiar people, we are God’s own possession, as we belong to Him.
