A Reflection on 1 Peter 1
Jesus the son of God came to die in our place.
He left the glory and pleasure of above to fill our hearts with the abundance of His love.
He walked the earth below to restore the wickedness and give the might and strength to each and every king.
He removed the depths and power of even the greatest sins.
On that cross, the unimaginable pain- let that sacrifice not let you remain the same.
Take the promises and hold them as true,
We are warriors on a mission until we meet with You.
We may feel weak and break down, but remind us that we stand on Holy ground.
Draw us to Yourself and fill us with the greatness of Your name.
Help us to open Your Word and remind us that Your promises remain unchanged.
Send us out into the world to speak on behalf of Your greatness and fame.
Guard us with all Your power and might and let us never fear for You know what is right, it is Your battle to fight.
Soften our hearts and make us anew- remove the bitterness that keeps us from clearly seeing You.
Make us hunger and make us thirst until it is only Your love we see first
