1 Peter 1:20-21
Take Time to Pray
1 To You, O LORD, I life up my soul;
2 in You I trust, O my God.
Do not let me be put to shame,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one whose hope is in You
will ever be put to shame,
but they will be put to shame
who are treacherous without excuse. (wantonly treacherous)
20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
· Jesus was with God and was God before creation.
· Jesus has risen from the dead.
· Jesus is our Savior.
· Jesus gives us faith.
· Our faith does not come from ourselves, but from Jesus.
· We cannot earn our salvation.
· How am I trying to earn my salvation?
· How can I change my attitude?
· When I get prideful about my prayers and devotions.
· A simple prayer: Dear Lord, help me to remain a humble servant longing to learn about You.
