Before these words were addressed to the church, they were addressed to Israel. And the church, like Israel, has been chosen of God to be a light of salvation to the unsaved.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation,” (1 Pet. 2:9-12).
As the people of God, the mission of the church is to proclaim or announce to the world Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of the living God. The church must show forth the praises of Jesus Christ who has called believers out of the darkness of sin into light of His love and life. This is the good news the unsaved needs to know. Through the grace of God they too can pass from the darkness of sin into the light of Christ’s love and life.
