 Re: 1 Peter

5:1-14 NASB

Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed, shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Through Silvanus, our faithful brother (for so I regard him), I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it! She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you greetings, and so does my son, Mark. Greet one another with a kiss of love.

Peace be to you all who are in Christ.

For those who may be asking why I simply posted 1 Peter with no comment, after all most have a Bible or can read it online, please allow me to explain.

First, I had just finished 12 weeks studying it and it was/is so precious to me.

Second, I do not have ginnyrose's skill at posting a small portion and coherently drawing from it. Instead, I pray the Holy Spirit spoke to you clearly through the Word alone.

And lastly, when I started this most of the threads dealt with persecution in some form. I simply posted the apostle Peter's insight and instruction.

I posted it a bit at a time for you to think on and allow the Spirit to speak to you where you are. But not so much you would rush through it. I removed the verse numbers to make for smoother reading.

We have many threads giving our or some other man's opinion. I just wanted to share this from God's perspective.

Have a blessed day! May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ... and do something fun!
