1 Peter 1:22-25

KJV 22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

WEB 22 Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently, 23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever. 24 For, “All flesh is like grass, and all of man’s glory like the flower in the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls; 25but the Lord’s word endures forever.” This is the word of Good News which was preached to you.


These are my thoughts, please share yours.

22 Hearing God’s truth should bring us to a greater life and more pure life. We are to be moved by the Spirit with love for both the Lord and also one another.

23 We are now as Christians born in the pureness of the Holy Spirit being born no longer in the sinful flesh of sin that leads to death but in the Spirit that leads us to the life that doesn’t end.

24 We still have the flesh but we are to grow in the Spirit even though our flesh remains and sometimes our spirit is pushed to grow more because we fight our flesh.

25 God word is always and will always be true just as He is.
