1 Peter 1:6-9

Feb 12, 2013
1 Peter 1:6-9

KJV 6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

JuliaSmith 6 By which ye are transported with joy, now for a little, (if it is necessary,) having grieved in various temptations: 7 That the proof of your faith, much more precious than perishing gold, and being tried by fire, might be found to praise and honour and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom not having seen, ye love; in whom, now not seeing, but believing, ye are transported with joy unalterable, and highly valued: 9 Receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of souls.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

6 Trials often bring us grief but we are still to rejoice and praise God during these times because we should have the faith that He will carry us thru them. Life is trials whether we have God or don’t but because we have God going with us thru the trial, we have reason to rejoice.

7 As Christians trials are hard but they can be used to draw us closer to our Lord and grow us in faith and make us ready for the next steps He has planned for us.

8 We don’t physically see Him but have faith that He is with and we because we feel His presence, His presence being with us should bring us this joy that isn’t changed by what trial may come. We have grace thru Him and fellowship with Him this should cause our joy.

9 By faith in Him we have salvation. Jesus and faith in Him alone saves. Many think there are other ways to salvation but believing in Jesus as our Lord is the only Way.
