The book of Peter is a treasure chest of Biblical gold, overflowing with direction, correction and revelation. I’ve collated a few of my favourite verses.
“To the chosen ones who have been scattered abroad like seed into the nations.”
1 PETER 1: 1
“You are not forgotten, for you have been chosen and destined by Father God. The Holy Spirit has set you apart to be God’s holy ones, obedient followers of Jesus Christ who have been gloriously sprinkled with his blood. May God’s delightful grace and peace cascade over you many times over!”
1 PETER 1:2
“Through our faith, the mighty power of God constantly guards us until our full salvation is ready to be revealed in the last time. May the thought of this cause you to jump for joy, even though lately you’ve had to put up with the grief of many trials. But these only reveal the sterling core of your faith, which is far more valuable than gold that perishes, for even gold is refined by fire. Your authentic faith will result in even more praise, glory, and honor when Jesus the Anointed One is revealed.”
1 PETER 2:5
“Your ministry is never for your benefit. But for the benefit of those around you.God revealed to the prophets that their ministry was not for their own benefit but for yours.”
1 PETER 1:12
“As God’s obedient children, never again shape your lives by the desires that you followed when you didn’t know better. Instead, shape your lives to become like the Holy One who called you. For Scripture says, “You are to be holy, because I am holy.” Since you call on him as your heavenly Father, the impartial Judge who judges according to each one’s works, live each day with holy awe and reverence throughout your time on earth.
1 PETERS 1:14
“But you are God’s chosen treasure—priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvellous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world. For at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God’s mercy, because you hadn’t received it yet, but now you are drenched with it!”
1 PETER 2:9
“In every relationship, each of you must wrap around yourself the apron of a humble servant. Because. God resists you when you are proud, but multiples grace and favour when you are humble.”
1 PETER 5:5
“Pour out all your worries and stress upon hum and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.”
1 PETER 5:7
“You must understand this at the outset: Interpretation of scriptural prophecy requires the Holy Spirit, for it does not originate from someone’s own imagination. No true prophecy comes from human initiative but is inspired by the moving of the Holy Spirit upon those who spoke the message that came from God.”
2 PETER 1:20
“But continue to grow and increase in God’s grace and intimacy with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May he receive all the glory both now and until the day eternity begins. Amen!”
2 PETER 4:17
