Letters From God–Book of 1 Peter 1:13-21

*********************************************************************************

My child, you are to gird up the loins of your mind.  That is, you are to be mentally alert and ready to obey My word and ready to receive the fulfillment of My word.  You are to be steady in your thinking and in your life and not swayed by the world, false teaching and other things.  You are to maintain your hope unto the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of My Son Jesus Christ.  You have received of My grace and are receiving of My grace from day to day but fullness of the blessings of My grace will be yours at the revelation of My Son Jesus.  You are to be obedient, not living according to the former lusts when you abode in ignorance.  I called you and you are to be holy in all manner of your life even as I am holy.  This holiness comes not in your own efforts but is the result of you abiding in Jesus.  He is the vine and you a branch.  His nature dwells in you and is to be manifest through you.  You are My child and call on Me as your Father.  I, as a Father watch over My children and deal with them according to their works.  So pass the time of you temporary life in the world in fear of straying from the life expected of you.  For you know that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold which have earthly value, from your vain life received by tradition from you Fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot which has eternal value.  Truly, he was foreordained before the foundation of the world, and was manifest in these last times for you, who by him do believe in Me that raised him up from the dead and gave him glory, that your faith and hope might be in Me.  1 Peter 1:13-21
