Everything I Ever Needed To Know I Learned From 1 Peter 4-5


Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking *** The end of all things is at hand *** Be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. *** Keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. *** As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: *** To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. *** Do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you *** Rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings *** If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. *** But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler *** Shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight *** When the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory *** Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders *** Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” *** Be sober-minded; be watchful *** Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. *** The God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you *** To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen. *** This is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it. *** Greet one another with the kiss of love. *** Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
