THE WORD OF GOD
1Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1Peter 1:14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
Brothers, be obedient children of God, gird up your mind with His Holy Word. Do not fashion yourselves in lusts as you once did in ignorance as the lost world does even now.
1Peter 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
1Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
God has called us through His Holy Spirit unto salvation. So we are to be holy in all manner of conversation. Not just in our words as to our speaking, but our actions also are conversations to those who look upon us, as we walk through this life here on earth. Not only is God the Father looking on us, but also our brothers in Christ Jesus, and the lost of this world are watching to see if we live and walk differently that they do. So be you holy in ALL manner of conversation.
1Peter 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
1Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
1Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Brothers, fear what God can do, and not what man can do. For God is not a respecter of persons, He will judge you and I according to our work that we did for him while on this earth.
We are not redeemed with corruptible things such as silver and gold. Verse 18 tells us that we are to know that the tradition of gold and silver were received of our earthly fathers. But we are to turn away from this vain conversation of men. We have been cleansed from ALL unrighteousness by the blood of the lamb Jesus Christ our Lord.
1Peter 1:20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
1Peter 1:21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
1Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
Brothers, once again we are told to love the brethren through truth and through the Spirit. We are to love one another with a pure heart fervently.
1Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
We are now born of incorruptible seed. Confess your sins before God and get back on that path that He put you on. Go about doing His work that he gave you to do. Love your brother in Christ and do his work now before his soon appearing.
1Peter 1:24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
1Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
God Bless you my brothers,
