We Are The Elect Of God

1 Peter 1:2–Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

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

Elect of God–We are, God the Father’s, chosen ones according to His foreknowledge.  God is all knowing from eternity to eternity.  He knows the future as well as the past.  He foreknew us, and our future exercise of our free will, to place our faith in Jesus Christ, and thus to receive salvation through God’s grace.  According to this foreknowledge he chose us.

Through sanctification of the Spirit–The Holy Spirit separates us from the world and unto God.  He separates us unto obedience.  This obedience is an act of faith and allows us to walk with God and experience Him.  This obedience is an act of faith, as we walk by faith (unto God) and not by sight (unto the world).  He separates us unto sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ which cleanses us from all sin.  “If we walk in the light (obedience), as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).

God the Father chose us. The Holy Spirit separated us. Jesus Christ cleansed us.
