A Letter From Peter

BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO DELIGHTS IN GOD'S LAW AND MEDITATES ON IT DAY AND NIGHT.  Psa 1:1-2

BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO DELIGHTS IN GOD’S LAW AND MEDITATES ON IT DAY AND NIGHT. Psalm 1:1-2

 

Dearly beloved,

I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

Honour all men.  Love the brotherhood.  Fear God.  Honour the king.

Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.

For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us and example that ye should follow his steps:

Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: 

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

1 Peter 2:11-25

SIH’s Think On These Things: Proverbs 15:31-33

This is a profound teaching and I believe the MOST IMPORTANT TEACHING IN THE WHOLE BIBLE! If we fear God and have respect for His warnings by taking heed and obeying Him, we will be blessed and things will go well with us. If we are unwise and foolhardy and disregard His Words to us, He is not able to bless us because the BLESSINGS come with OBEDIENCE. Be WISE; don’t be as the fool who says there is no god (Psalm 53:1) and rejects God and His Word. God reveals Himself to those with a humble and teachable spirit, not to the proud nor to the fool.
