1 Peter 1:22-2:3 – Longing for the Word

Are you growing in your faith? Do you care if you’re not? Have you become satisfied with a little bit of Bible knowledge and a little bit of doctrinal understanding?

1 Peter 1:17-21 – What The Precious Blood of Christ Means To Our Holiness

The blood of Christ was shed so that we might have a relationship with God. That relationship is only made possible because Jesus was willing to die for us on the cross. It was not the price of silver and gold that we were saved us, even though those precious metals are costly and worth […]

1 Peter 1:13-16 – Holiness Through The Hope Revealed in Christ

None of us can acquire holiness apart from God. It dwells in God alone. Holiness is only possible as the soul’s possession of God; nay, better still, as God’s possession of the soul. It never can be inherent, or possessed apart from the Divine fullness, any more than a river can flow on if it […]

1 Peter 1:10-12 – Longing for The Great Salvation That Was Prophesied

Salvation was the theme of the prophets’ study, it was the theme of the Spirit’s inspiration, it was the theme of the apostles’ testimony, and it was the theme of the angels’ interest.  This is so rich, so rich.  And the very fact that the Old Testament prophets were so interested in it, that the […]

1 Peter 1:3-5 – A Living Hope Through the Gospel

For some of you things have been hard and in God’s kindness they will get better. They’ll get a little easier. And for some of you things have been bad and they’ll improve. But for others of us, they may get worse. But no matter where we are in those three categories that’s not where […]

1 Peter 1:1-2 – Strangers and Exiles On Earth

All those who really have faith in Jesus Christ are ‘strangers’; scattered throughout the world, and dwelling dispersedly in an order of things to which they do not belong, ‘seeking a city which hath foundations.’ The word ‘strangers’ means, originally, persons for a time living in an alien city. And that is the idea that […]
