Our next stop on the Blogging Through the Bible Journey is 1st Peter. So I thought it fitting to give a little insight as to what we will be seeing as we dig deep in to this wonderful book of the Bible. 1st Peter is kind of a short book in the Bible only containing 5 chapters but it carries a powerful punch.
First off we will see encouragement extended to all of Christ’s followers. This book was written for the downhearted for encouragement. It is no secret that we all need encouragement as we go through our walk with Christ and 1st Peter is one of the many places to receive just what we need. We will be reminded that even though the road will be long and hard we can be certain that it is well worth it. Peter reminds us to stay on the straight and narrow.
Next we will visit the social duties that we should perform in our walk. These are very important since daily we come in contact with people in our homes, at the grocery store, at church and well anywhere else. Following these guidelines helps us become a disciple to others without ever speaking a word. If I have said it once I have said it a million times. Non-believers watch us to see if we are going to fail. In 1st Peter we will touch on how we should act towards others inside and outside our homes.
Finally we will be reminded of the trials we will face. I am sure we all know about trails. As a matter of fact I am sure we are all going through some right now. Yet, we are still encouraged because of the rewards we are going to receive after we are gone from this world.
Yes, 1st Peter may be a small book but it is pack full of information and I for one can’t wait!!! So be sure to check back on Friday as I share my thoughts on this amazing book.
