Today’s scripture: 1 Peter 5:10-14
How sad … We leave 1 Peter today. I don’t know about you, but this little book
has been encouraging, affirming, convicting … sometimes all at once!
What an appropriate closing, though. Yes, we will suffer “for a little while”
as we inhabit these earthly bodies during our temporary stay on earth. While
we’re here, God will “perfect, strengthen, and establish” us. Every day we’re
on earth, we must strive to be more like Christ, knowing our ultimate reward is
spending eternity with our Lord.
So as Peter wrote two thousand years ago: “… this is the true grace of God.
Stand firm in it!”
