Are you one of
"THE CHOSEN "
A Bible Study in 1st Peter
1 Peter 1:1 "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
who are chosen
2 according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
by the sanctifying work of the Spirit,
to obey Jesus Christ and
be sprinkled with His blood:
May grace and peace be yours in the fullest measure.
1. Was this written to only those and only for those "who reside as aliens, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia"?
2. What does it mean to be "CHOSEN"?
3. Is everyone CHOSEN?
4. What does it mean that you were CHOSEN according to the foreknowledge of God the Father?
5. What does it mean that you were CHOSEN by the sanctifying work of the Spirit? (Sanctified is the devoting or setting apart of anything to the worship or service of God. To be consecrated)
6. Why does any of this matter?
Lord willing, I would like to continue this study through 1 Peter and 2 Peter. Will you come with me?
My prayer is that this will be more - Much More - than just a study. I pray that God will use this in our live to get us ready for what is upon us.
He is able. His Word is Alive. The Spirit is at work. Will you join Him?
