Over the last few weeks, I’ve been looking at ways to apply the word found in 1 Peter 1-2 and sharing some thoughts that not only can benefit you now but also help the next generation too! The greatest of all possessions one can hand off to future generations are the guiding principles taught by Christ Jesus.
Written about in “Climbing Higher” is the need to spend our time on activities that provide a heart of wisdom. The value of these activities will rise over time as commodities that will be useful forever; providing a living hope and a valuable resource forever.
The post “Faith, Hope, and Love Connection emphasized the need to express faith actively by loving God and your neighbor. To see God at work in their life and give praise for strength in times of trouble. To receive God’s love and the joy in looking at better days ahead when we gain the victory to receive the everlasting reward.
A thought from the post “Run the Race to the Finish Line” is that God and the Word are related because they were from the beginning and last forever. Let us set aside time each day to read, understand, and apply God’s Word. The event that gives confidence to our faith is the death of Christ on the Cross. Then the resurrection three days afterwards and the Holy Spirit adds to our confidence which continues to build daily. These resources are made available to us each day to help us boldly run the race to the finish line.
Taking in the Word of God and sharing with the post “Desire the Word”, the thought was that the Devine virtues in the Word of God are a source of nourishment for the soul. The Word will satisfy your hunger as you take in the values of God.
The post “Step Ahead Along the Path” pointed out that there is a motive for good personal and public behavior. The motive is to give integrity to what we profess. People will then begin to see something different in us and want to have what we have. A clear path will be set so others will desire to step ahead along this path.
In the post “Bridge the Gap”, we are reminded of the unjust suffering that Jesus went through for our salvation. He is our example to follow when we contend with difficulties. Many times, we face unjust suffering for taking actions that do not fit what out of touch authorities say to do. We are controlled with regulation, censorship, or suppression.
Keep up with my spiritual journey over the next few weeks either through following this blog or the Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God – A Spiritual Journey. Let’s share thoughts or ideas about applying our faith so we step ahead along the path to victory.
Thanks for the great summary! I am enjoying the series.
