At the End of the Day: 1st Peter 1:1-12
September 11, 2022
1 Peter 1:1-12
This verse mentions all three members of the Godhead—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All three work as one to bring about our salvation. The Father chose us before we chose him (Eph 1:4), the Son died for us while we were still sinners (Romans 5:6-10). The Holy Spirit works in our lives to bring us salvation and to set us apart for God’s pleasure. In 1 Peter 1:11, The Spirit of Christ is another name for the Holy Spirit. Before Jesus left his ministry on earth to return to heaven, he promised to send his Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to teach, help and guide his followed. The Holy Spirit would tell them all about Jesus and reveal his glory. The Old Testament prophets, writing under the Holy Spirit’s inspiration, described the coming Messiah, the New Testament apostles, through the inspiration of the same Spirit, preached the crucified and risen Lord.
