Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have committed all this evil, yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. You must not turn aside, for then you would go after futile things which can not profit or deliver, because they are futile. For the Lord will not abandon His people on account of His great name, because the Lord has been pleased to make you a people for Himself. Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. But if you still do wickedly, both you and your king will be swept away.”
1 Samuel 12:20-22, 24-25 NASB
for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1 Peter 2:10 NASB
Even when we sin, do not draw away from God but serve Him with your whole heart. God will not abandon you. He is pleased to make you a person for Himself. Fear God and serve the Lord with all your heart in truth. And consider all the things He has done for you.
🌹Through His mercy and on account of His great name you are a person of God!! Praise Him and rejoice in the life He has given you.
Continually Seeking Him,
