Position Yourself For God’s Blessing

Straighten Out Your Life-Style

As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
1 Peter 1:15-16
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16for it is written: Because it is written, “Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
Live in Awe

And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
Receive His Blessing With Confidence
You were redeemed by Christ
1 Peter 1:18-19
For as much as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
God’s Purpose is Eternal

Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you.
Your Faith and Hope are in God

Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
Share His Blessing In Love
Love is to be shared

Love is from God’s word
1 Peter 1:23
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
Love is Eternal
1 Peter 1:24
For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:

But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.
