Beyond the Gospels: Peter

Today’s Link: 1 Peter 2:1-12

There is a song we used to sing to help the incarcerated youth we worked with realize how special they are: “God Danced the Day You Were Born.” Believers are chosen and precious to God, but in the world we are like strangers. We are to live a truly consecrated holy way of life. We are to reflect the character of the Lord in all that we do as we are set apart by His presence.
Christ’s guidance teaches and leads one into righteousness. It is by God’s dynamic power that we are freed to live a righteous, godly life. No malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, nor slander… as these things only war against our soul. They will only interfere with faithful living.
How is this to be? God’s righteousness comes through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for those of us who put our faith in Him.

Thought for today: Through Jesus Christ we are made acceptable to God for He has been made the cornerstone.

Heavenly Father, I give thanks that it is by your Spirit we have been called out of darkness into light… Amen.
