1 Peter 1:19-21

1 Peter 1:19-21

KJV 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

WEB 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb without blemish or spot, the blood of Christ, 20 who was foreknown indeed before the foundation of the world, but was revealed in this last age for your sake,21 who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead, and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope might be in God.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

19 We are saved by the shedding of Jesus’ blood that provided us grace and gave us a relationship with the Lord thru Christ.

20 God had these plans before He made creation and from before time began. God’s plan continues thru the end of the age.

21 We believe in God because of the Lord and His grace. God raised Him from death and since that day He has raised many Christians from the death of sin and brought them to His glory of salvation. He is our hope and faith.

My thoughts-
Imagine being a witness to Jesus resurrection.
People thought they had seen a ghost, but he was no ghost. The grave was empty, the door to the tomb was open, the graveclothes were on the floor. Jesus was talking with Mary, who was asking him, before she recognised him, have you seen Jesus body?!

Jesus must have laughed silly question. He also got Thomas to touch him cos he doubted. And then he ate fish with them. Now people today might report theyve seen a ghost, but the thing is ghosts do not have a body. Raisng from the dead doesnt mean God just takes our spirits, he saves and transforms our bodies as well, fashions them into spiritual bodies.

Faith is that Jesus was raised from the dead and He was glorified. If we dont believe this, our faith is in vain.
