11/22/19: 1 Peter 1:1-12; Psalm 119:17-32; Proverbs 28:8-10
As I read 1 Peter today I was reminded of a very important similarity that the first century church has shared with all believers — and it is reassuring to me. While we have not physically seen the Lord through our love for him and our faith we are “filled with joy” and are receiving salvation. Amen.
1 Peter: 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
