1 Peter 2
In view of the gift of salvation, Peter urges believers to grow in holiness and to purify themselves in obedience to the truth (1:13-2:12). As “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession” (2:9), they should grow up in their salvation and manifest a new quality of life before a watching world. This gift of salvation is best expressed on a relational level by an attitude of submission and service to others (2:13-3:12). Believers should submit for the Lord’s sake to those in government and to those who personally have authority over them (2:13-20), and this attitude of submission to God’s purposes is best illustrated in the undeserved suffering of Christ (2:21-25) who suffered sinlessly, silently, and as a substitute for others.
READING of 1 PETER 2
Lord, may I put aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, and long for the pure milk of the word so that by it I may grow in respect to salvation.
