God’s Truth for Trying Times - 3/13/22

READ: 1 Peter 1:8-9

Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. [1 Peter 1:8-9 ESV]

CONSIDER: We have not seen Jesus face to face but we will one day. We believe in Jesus and he gives us joy that is beyond any circumstance. Are full and final salvation will be realized in a day future, as we who have been freed from the power and penalty of sin will be delivered from its very presence.

THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?

PRAY: Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
