1 Peter 2:2

1 Peter 2:2

When we were born again we were positionally sanctified - positionally set apart unto God, once for all. We were taken out of the old creation in Adam and placed into the new creation in Christ. As new-born babes in Christ we were positioned in Him.. but our position in Him needs to be worked out practically - a practical sanctification that needs to take place in our everyday life and living. Our positional sanctification took place the moment that we were read more...

1 Peter 2:3

1 Peter 2:3

It is David who calls us to “taste and see that the Lord is good,' and we who have trusted in Christ as Saviour have truly tasted of the goodness of God in our own lives, and have seen in abundance the loving-kindness and forgiveness of our gracious heavenly Father. How blessed is the man who tastes of the goodness of the Lord and takes refuge in Him.

And since we have been born from above and have tasted of the read more...

1 Peter 2:4

1 Peter 2:4

There are many ways to describe believers in Scripture and many similes drawn to illustrate our role in the world and relationship to Christ. We are sheep following our Shepherd and the bride of our heavenly Bridegroom. The intimate relationship between a man his wife and the interconnectedness of body-members with its living Head are all pictures of Christians, painted in the Word of God.

We are branches on a vine and read more...

1 Peter 2:5

1 Peter 2:5

In the time of Israel, the first Temple was a physical building, which was constructed out of great blocks of hewn stone, but in this dispensation, Christians are a spiritual house and all believers are living stones that are being assembled together as a fitting dwelling-place for God, with the Lord Jesus being the chief Cornerstone.

But not only are we living stones that are being fashioned into a spiritual house, but we are read more...

1 Peter 2:6

1 Peter 2:6

Christians and the Church are a special group of people who are holy unto the Lord. We are set apart for a specific purpose in this dispensation of grace. Beginning with 120 in the upper room, on that first day of Pentecost, we are being formed, fashioned and knitted together, by God Himself, into a sacred, spiritual Temple.

Day after week after decade after centuries of time, men and women of faith have been added to that read more...

1 Peter 2:9

1 Peter 2:9

What an astonishing revelation is contained within this simple yet profound verse of Scripture. As members of the body of Christ it reveals to us one of the many precious privileges that has become ours in Christ - that we are: a chosen race and a royal priesthood. We have been made a holy nation and a special people who have become God’s own precious possession.

God has selected you and me out read more...

1 Peter 2:10

1 Peter 2:10

Although certain nations have founded their laws on Judeo-Christian principles, which acknowledge God as Creator and chose His moral laws as the foundation upon which to build their societies, there has only been one nation that has a God-instituted, everlasting covenant-relationship with the Lord and that is the nation of Israel.

They were His chosen people.. selected out from the sea of humanity to be governed by God. They were read more...

1 Peter 2:11

1 Peter 2:11

We are engaged in a spiritual war, and in order to gain an inner victory of the soul during our earthly walk, we are to abstain from fleshly lusts, and carnal desires, which war against the soul. But this requires us to be able to say NO to the continuous pull of the flesh and to resist the old sin nature, that constantly and consistently is at enmity with our new life in Christ - our new born-again spirit, which was made alive by faith in Christ. And so we are read more...

1 Peter 2:11

1 Peter 2:11

We have moved from the kingdom of darkness into God’s glorious kingdom of light. We have passed from death to life, from being a child of Satan to being a Child of the king of kings, from being of the old creation in Adam to being a new creation in Christ – and it is a transaction that was signed in blood, on a wooden cross, two thousand years ago, when Christ redeemed us from our sins.

Peter urges and implores us to remember that we are simply read more...

1 Peter 2:17

1 Peter 2:17

As children of God and citizens of heaven Peter reminds us that we have a responsibility to live godly lives, as unto the Lord. We are no longer enslaved to sin and Satan, nor are we dead in our trespasses and without hope in the world, for we have been released from the slave-market of sin by the blood of the Lamb and are to live in a way that honours Him.

Earlier in the passage the apostle reminded us that as members read more...

1 Peter 2:20

1 Peter 2:20

The central theme in the book of first Peter is HOPE for the Christian, in the midst of tremendous suffering. The early church were plagued with significant persecution and pain. They were imprisoned for their faith. They were slandered and ridiculed, and they were hated and abused for the sake of Jesus Christ.

The apostle Peter wrote his encouraging letter, to remind us of our position in Christ, and the living hope we have in read more...

1 Peter 2:21

1 Peter 2:21

The spiritual life to which we are all called is not an easy path to tread and Christ Himself warned us that in this world we will have tribulation, while Paul reminds us that all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

Many believe that becoming a Christian will guarantee a life of simplicity and ease; affluence and comfort, but we are warned in many passages that those who delight in piety and are read more...

1 Peter 2:23

1 Peter 2:23

Jesus came to earth as the best example of how man should live. He was the perfect pattern; the matchless measure and exact representation of ideal humanity and Jesus lived His life the way that God had intended all men to live. He was God's ideal standard Who came to earth to illustrate the way that God had determined man should behave towards Himself and His creation - from the very beginning.

Jesus demonstrated throughout His read more...

1 Peter 2:24

1 Peter 2:24

The Lord Jesus not only died to pay the price FOR us our sins, but He also died AS us and in the place of us. They were OUR sins, but He bore the punishment for us – so that we would never need to be punished for them. As the sinless Son of Man, He paid the full burden-weight of the accumulated sins of the whole world, past, present and future – and He also identified with all who would believe on Him, so that we might reckon ourselves dead TO those sins as we read more...

1 Peter 2:25

1 Peter 2:25

In the middle section of his epistle, Peter outlines what a believer's relationship should be in different segments of society. He considers a pilgrim's relationship to the world, a citizen's relationship to the government, a servant's relationship to his master, and he ties it together with a believer's relationship with the Lord.

The challenge in each case is to display a Christ-like attitude before a world of unsaved people, so read more...
