SALVATION


THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PETER

CHAPTER 1
 

THE HOPE OF SALVATION

          Greetings and welcome back to Daily Bread as we begin a new study of The First Epistle of Peter. Recalling the character of Peter from the Gospels and Lukeís account of Peter in The Acts of the Apostles, we can expect that Peter, the rock upon which Jesus said He would build His Church, will present some very valuable teachings for us. Letís take a look. Keep in mind that like Paul, he talks kinda deep so ya gotta ponder on it a bit and not get discouraged and the TRUTH will come on like a light in darkness.

WHAT IS THE HOPE OF SALVATION AND HOW DOES THE HOPE OF SALVATION AFFECT YOU?

          From Peter, an Apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, chosen according to the foresight of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace to you, and peace be multiplied.

          Who is Peter addressing this letter to? The strangers, scattered throughout five different nations. By this, you can conclude that he is speaking of the Jewish believers, because of the word scattered, as Godís people were exiles who were once dispersed in different places. Weíre used to the Gentiles being referred to as strangers in the Bible, but in this case, the Jewish people are in other lands, making them the strangers. Now that Peter has made his greeting and well wishes, he continues with praise.

          Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again (we have been born again) to a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible (which cannot die), and undefiled, and that doesnít fade away, reserved in Heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through Faith unto Salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time. Rejoice greatly in this, even though for a while, if necessary, you are distressed through many different temptations. Rejoice greatly that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, will result in praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: whom having not seen, you love; in whom, though now you donít see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: receiving (holding, welcoming, believing, allowing, experiencing) the outcome of your faith, which is the salvation of your souls.

THE HOPE OF SALVATION TRUTH OF THE HOPE OF SALVATION BLESSINGS WHICH BRING FORTH THE HOPE OF SALVATION

          The prophets who prophesied of the Grace that you would receive, have inquired and searched diligently for this salvation, wondering what, or when, the Spirit of Christ (which was in them) meant, when it testified beforehand about the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that would follow. Not to those whom it was revealed to (the prophets and people who they spoke to), but to us, they ministered (spoke of) the things that are now reported to you (fulfilled prophecies) by those who have preached the Gospel to you with the Holy Ghost sent down from Heaven; which things the Angels desire (wish) to look into.

          What does all this mean, it sounds soooooooo complicated, but it is really quite simple. Let's check it out. Well, it means that long ago the Spirit of Christ told the past prophets of the Bible about the sufferings of Christ and the Grace that would follow, way before Christís time, but the prophets and the people they taught, couldnít understand it, because it hadnít come to pass, and they never saw such things happen. Donít forget that Peterís audience here is made up of Jewish people who heard scripture all their lives, and heís telling them, Look, scripture has been fulfilled, and those prophets were talking to US! And now, people are preaching the Gospel with the Holy Ghost and doing things that even the very Angels long to know!

THE HOPE OF SALVATION WARNING OF THE HOPE OF SALVATION CONCERNS AND THE HOPE OF SALVATION DANGERS

          Peter continues, so prepare your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the Grace that is to be brought to you when Jesus Christ returns. Be as obedient children, not following your former desires in your ignorance: but as Jesus, who has called you, is Holy, so should you be holy in all your manner of living; because it is written, Be holy; for I am Holy.

          And if you call on the Father, who without partiality of persons, judges according to every man's work, pass the time of your pilgrimage in fear (respect for God), since as you know, you werenít redeemed with material things, like silver and gold, from your empty manner of life (received by tradition from your fathers), but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot: who truly was predestined before the foundation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for you, who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead, and gave Him glory; that your Faith and hope might be in God.

          Since you have purified your souls in obeying the TRUTH through the Spirit unto genuine love of the brethren, see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently, being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which lives and remains for ever. Because all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower of it falls away (dies), but the Word of the Lord endures for ever. And this is the Word which by the Gospel is preached to you.

          Change your way of life! Be like an obedient child. Donít act like you did when you were ignorant ... Before you knew TRUTH. Youíre reborn to God, not to man and his traditions. Youíre different now, be holy. And your hope is in God, through Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit. Love one another, sincerely, as the new child of God that you are now. These are the messages that Peter begins his first letter with, and as you can see, they apply to us today, just as they did back in the very first years of the church.

          Canít wait to see what Peter has to say next, can you? Then come on back again soon, and weíll share it together in our next Daily Bread.
