1 Peter 4:1-11
Rev. Adam K. Sellen
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.
~1 Peter 3:18~
Be Prepared to Suffer
Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from
sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Leave the Old—v. 3-6
With respect to this they are surprised when you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they malign you.
But they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh
People living in sin are amassing a debt to God that they will spend all eternity paying back.
Our Blessed Hope—v. 7
To Him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
