1 Peter 2: Who Am I?
Verse of the Day: (V4) “To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,”

1. Chosen Of God (V1-8)
V2 “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:”

Do you know that once we confess and repent our sins, and believe and receive Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour, we become God’s chosen and precious people? Indeed, what a privilege and honour to be chosen by the true and living God who shall protect us from harm, and provide for all our needs. Let us as new Christians continue to desire God’s holy Word and grow to be matured Christians serving Him until His glorious return or the day He calls us home. Let us taste that the Lord is gracious and full of mercy.

V3 “If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”

2. People Of God (V9-14)
V9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

Let us as Christians be holy and thankful to God, knowing that we are His chosen and precious people and have obtained His mercy, even in the midst of intense and great suffering and persecution. Let us truly trust God who call us that He is able to help and deliver us in all our troubles before He promotes us to be with Him in heaven for ever.

V10 “Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”

3. Servant Of God (V15-25)
V16 “As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.”

There are Christians after they have tasted that the Lord is gracious become proud and take for granted God’s blessings upon them. Let us as servants of God humble ourselves knowing that we are only sinners saved by grace, even though we are bound for heaven. Let us embrace suffering for Christ’s sake even as Christ also suffered for us leaving us an example that the godly and righteous shall suffer in this ungodly and evil world.

V21 “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:”

Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, thank You that You have chosen me to be Your people and servant.

1 Peter 1: How Is Your Faith?
Verse of the Day: (V7) “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:”

1. Faith (V1-16)

V8 “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:”

Faith in God is believing in God that He is the Creator and Saviour of the world, even though we cannot see or touch Him. When we believe and love God, He shall send His Spirit to dwell in us and grant us His Spirit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control in the midst of our sufferings, and eventually deliver us from our sufferings, so that our faith is tested and comes forth as precious gold.

V9 “Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.”

2. Fear (V17-21)
V17 “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:”

Let us live by faith in God and have the fear of God in us and trust and obey Him and His Word, because our souls are redeemed by the precious blood of Jesus, the Son of God. Indeed, only Jesus forgives and redeems us from our sins because only He is the perfect Son of God without sin. Whoever believes in Jesus and confess and repent his sins shall shun fiery hell, and have everlasting life with Him now and forever in glorious heaven.

V19 “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:”

3. Flesh (V22-25)
V24 “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:”

There are only 2 things in this world which shall endure forever – God’s Word and souls. God’s Word is none other than Jesus Christ who shall live forever. However, all man shall die in his flesh as after all he is but flesh. The vital question is where will the soul of man be after his death? If we believe in Christ, our souls shall live with Him now and forever in heaven, but if we reject Him, our souls shall suffer in fiery hell after our death.

V25 “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”

Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, please increase my faith that it be praise, honour and glory to You.
