You Are God’s People

We are the people of God. He is our God and we are His people. Your blessing is upon Your people” (Psalm 3:8 NKJV).

When God called Moses to deliver Israel out of Egypt, He began calling them His people. “And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt” (Exodus 3:7). God has always had “people”. These didn’t include everyone. He called His people out, separated to Him.

The prophet Jeremiah spoke of a New Covenant. This covenant was not just for Israel, but all people—the world. But this shall be the covenant that I will make…and will be their God, and they shall be my people” (Jeremiah 31:33).

The writer of the Hebrews reminded us that God now has a people—New Covenant people. For this is the covenant that I will make…and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people” (Hebrews 8:10).

And Paul also reminds us that we are the people of God. “I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (2 Corinthians 6:16). By grace you are God’s people.
