Of Treasures and Royalty

Now if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, you will be My treasured possession out of all the nations--for the whole earth is Mine. Exodus 19:5

But you are a ‘chosen race; a royal priesthood’; a holy nation; a people for God’s possession. Your purpose is to announce the virtuous deeds of the one who called you out of darkness into his amazing light. Once you were ‘no people’; now you are ‘God’s people’. Once you had not received mercy; now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10

He gave himself for us so that he could ransom us from all lawless actions and purify for himself a people as his very own who would be eager for good works. Titus 2:14

Glory to the one who loved us, and freed us from our sins by his blood, and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and father – glory and power be to him for ever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:6

including us, whom he called not only from among the Jews but also from among the Gentiles?
This is what he says in Hosea,
I will call ‘not my people’ ‘my people’;
and ‘not beloved’ I will call ‘beloved’.
And in the place where it was said to them,
‘You are not my people’,
there they will be called ‘sons of the living God’.
 Romans 9:24-26
