We Are Because You Are

2 Samuel 7.23
who is like your people, like Israel, a nation unique in the earth, whom God set out to redeem for himself (and became most famous for it)
wow, God, thank you that our identity stems from you. our security is founded on you redeeming us for yourself, we are known not by who we are or what we did, we are known by the fame of the one who valued us and made us his! you called everyone who follows you your own, identifying yourself with us, making us your people, setting us apart from everyone else and fulfilling your purposes through us. thank you that it’s the whole world you did this for, for everyone who chooses to call you master and make you the lord of all, high above everything and everyone - all else. amazing, God!
