1 Peter 1:1-2

December 29, 2022


For several months now, I have been working my way through 1 Peter using the TEND (marieldavenport) method. I thought I would switch from focusing on trust to sharing what I have found in my study of Peter.

1 Peter 1:1-2



Take Time to Pray


May the meditations of my heart and mind be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord.



Examine


1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To God’s elect, strangers in the world scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 2 who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the satisfying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by His blood:

Grace and peace be yours in abundance. (NIV ’84)



Notice


God

· God knows us from before we are born.

· God sanctifies us by Jesus’ blood.

· God gives grace and peace.


Lesson

· Just as Peter’s audience were foreigners, we also are foreigners here on earth with our home in Heaven.

· We are to be obedient to Jesus (God).

· We have been known by God since before we were born.

· We are cleansed from our sins by Jesus.
