Book 60 1 Peter 001:001 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the chosen ones who are living as foreigners in the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 001:002 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, that you may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with his blood: Grace to you and peace be multiplied. 001:003 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy became our father again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 001:004 to an incorruptible and undefiled inheritance that doesn't fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, 001:005 who by the power of God are guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 001:006 Wherein you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been put to grief in various trials, 001:007 that the proof of your faith, which is more precious than gold that perishes even though it is tested by fire, may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ 001:008 whom not having known you love; in whom, though now you don't see him, yet believing, you rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory 001:009 receiving the result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 001:010 Concerning this salvation, the prophets sought and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 001:011 searching for who or what kind of time the Spirit of Christ, which was in them, pointed to, when he predicted the sufferings of Christ, and the glories that would follow them. 001:012 To them it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to you, they ministered these things, which now have been announced to you through those who preached the Good News to you by the Holy Spirit sent out from heaven; which things angels desire to look into. 001:013 Therefore, prepare your minds for action,{literally, "gird up the waist of your mind"} be sober and set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ 001:014 as children of obedience, not conforming yourselves according to your former lusts as in your ignorance, 001:015 but just as he who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior; 001:016 because it is written, "You shall be holy; for I am holy."{Leviticus 11:44 45} 001:017 If you call on him as Father, who without respect of persons judges according to each man's work, pass the time of your living as foreigners here in reverent fear: 001:018 knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from the useless way of life handed down from your fathers, 001:019 but with precious blood, as of a faultless and pure lamb, the blood of Christ; 001:020 who was foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of times for your sake, 001:021 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead, and gave him glory; so that your faith and hope might be in God. 001:022 Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently: 001:023 having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever. 001:024 For, "All flesh is like grass, and all of man's glory like the flower in the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls; 001:025 but the Lord's word endures forever... Continue reading book >>
