Small Bites

1 Peter 1:3-9

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, 5 who are being protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 In this you rejoice, even if now for a little while you have had to suffer various trials, 7 so that the genuineness of your faith—being more precious than gold that, though perishable, is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Although you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”

First of all, my apologies for missing most of last week’s posting of the Thought for the Day.

There is not much to add to these verses from 1st Peter because there is already so much here. Let me suggest that you read each verse (or up to a comma in each verse) and stop there to think about what truth is being shared. Digesting a passage like this in small bites is a fulfilling experience.

Be a blessing to someone today!
