This week I have continued my slow journey through 1 Peter. This is a fascinating time for me as I reflect on these truths for my life.
Peter is toward the end of his life. He shares with us what is really important.
Yesterday I spent some time pondering this passage:
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Pt. 2:9-11)
This passage tells you and me who we are in God’s eyes. Take a few minutes to ponder how He views us.
Here are a few questions for reflection:
- Which of these descriptions is most encouraging to me?
- Which one is most challenging?
- Which description is most hopeful?
- How does He want me to respond?
- Take a few minutes to thank Him.
