Commendable Submission

Read 1Peter 2:13-25

One of the most difficult marks of holiness to pursue is submission, particularly before an ungodly authority. Peter writes to believrs, to exhort them in that which is comenndable before God, and after the example of Christ - submission with a clear conscience before God. In this we are following Christ's steps.

Love One Another Fervently

Read 1Peter 1:22-25

Jesus gave a lot of instruction to his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion, which centred on loving one another. Peter picks up this point in his letter, as one of the first pursuits of holiness = sincere, fervent and pure-hearted brotherly love. By our rebirth in Chris by the Holy Spirit, were have been empowered to such holy love.
