Six-year-old Angie came home from school with a blue ribbon.
She said she had won it for knowing an answer in natural history.
"I said a giraffe had 3 legs."
Mom said, "But honey, a giraffe has four legs."
Angie said, "Mebe so, but I was the closes of anybody else!"
1 Peter 1:1-8
1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered
throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling
of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively
hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be,
ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold
that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise
and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see
him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
LIGHT from the WORD.
He HAS saved us from the PENALTY of sin - eternal death!
He IS saving us from the POWER of sin - the temptations
and trials of life.
He is moving us TOWARD an inheritance that is incorruptible,
undefiled, and never fades away!
And, the WAY God does these things is by "faith"!
That's a real good definition of faith.
It is HOW faith WORKS!
It is the power of God IN you to KEEP you in and through
obedience to Christ!
Don't forget this dynamic power of faith IN YOU today!
LET Him work in and through you!
