Peter lists some very special things about Christians in 1 Pet. 2:9-10, "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy."
First, theirs was the first generation of Christians, so that gave them a special place. But each following generation was also chosen by God.
Second, Christians are a royal priesthood; therefore we need no mere human to go between God and us.
Third, Christians are a special people to God - His children. Before Christ, we were a lost people, but in Christ, we belong to God.
Fourth, before Christ there was no mercy, but in Christ is the fullness of God's mercy.
Peter tells us we have a task - to praise God who saved us!
