1ST PETER CHAPTER 5
Chapter one: God planned long age to chose you. YOUR FAITH AND YOUR HOPE ARE IN GOD. You were born again, and this new life does not come from something that dies You were born again through GOD’S LIVING MESSAGE THAT CONTINUES FOREVER. YOUR FAITH AND YOUR HOPE ARE IN GOD.
Chapter two: … you should want the pure and simple teaching. By it you can mature in your salvation, IN THE PAST YOU HAD NEVER RECEIVED MERCY, BUT NOW YOU HAVE. NOW YOU HAVE A SHEPHERD AND OVERSEER OF YOUR SOULS. ANYONE WHO TRUSTS IN HIM WILL NEVER BE DISAPPOINTED.
Chapter 3 Wives, husbands – all of you be in agreement, understanding, loving, kind, humble. DO THIS SO THAT NOTHING WILL STOP YOUR PRAYERS. A GENTLE AND QUIET SPIRIT …. IS VERY PRECIOUS TO GOD. The Lord sees good the people and listens to their prayers. BE READY TO ANSWER EVERYONE WHO ASKS YOU ABOUT THE HOPE YOU HAVE BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD. JESUS HAS THE LAST WORD ON EVERYTHING. WHAT HE SAYS GOES...
Chapter 4 STRENGTHEN YOURSELVES WITH THE SAME WAY OF THINKING CHRIST HAD. THINK CLEARLY AND CONTROL YOURSELVES SO YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PRAY Love each other deeply, … love will cause people to forgive each other … When people insult you because you follow Christ, you are blessed… the Spirit of God is with you… if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed. Praise God because you wear that name.
1-4 To the elders in your group I beg you to shepherd God’s flock. Watch over them… This is what God wants. Do not be like a ruler…but be good examples
5-6 In the same way, younger people – all of you should be very humble with each other. “God is against the proud, but he gives grace to the humble” Proverbs 3:34 Be humble under God’s powerful hand so he will lift you up when the right time comes.
7 Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you.
8-11 Control yourselves and be careful. The devil is your enemy. Refuse to give in to him. Stand strong in your faith. Your Christian family all over the world is having the same kinds of suffering. God who gives all grace… He will make you strong and support you and keep you from falling. He called you to share in his glory in Christ… that will continue forever.
12-14 I wrote to encourage you and to tell you that this is the true grace of God. Stand strong in that grace. PEACE TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE IN CHRIST
