our very thoughts

and grants us sweet


“Greet one another with a kiss of love. To all of you who are in Christ, may there be peace.”

Commit Our Souls To Him


Let us who suffer
according to God’s will

commit our souls
to Him

in doing good
as to a faithful Creator

who suffered
for our sin.


“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit . . .”

“Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to doing good, as to a faithful Creator.”

You Were Called To This


Let us be of one mind
having compassion

loving as brothers
tender and courteous

not returning
evil for evil

but blessing knowing
we were called to this.


“Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tender hearted, be courteous;”

“not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing.”

Precious In His Sight


Let the hidden person
of the heart

just keep
shining through

His gentle
quiet Spirit

seen in
all you do.


“Do not let your adornment be merely outward – arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel – “

“rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”

1 Peter 3:3,4 NKJV

Christ Also Suffered


When we do good
yet suffer

and take it

we honor Him
who always judges

His children


“But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God.”

“For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:

“Who committed no sin,
Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;

“who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously . . .”

1 Peter 2:20,21,22,23. NKJV

Called Out Of Darkness


Once we knew
not mercy

and walked in the darkest

but now we too are
God’s people

called into His marvelous


“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people. That you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;”

“who once were not a people, but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.”

1 Peter 2:9,10 NKJV

Rest Your Hope


Let’s rest our hope
upon the grace

brought to us
by Christ

being obedient
and not conforming

to former lusts
and vice.


“Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ,”

“as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance, . . .”

1 Peter 1:13,14 NKJV

Precious Blood


We’ve not been redeemed
with corruptible things

like silver or
like gold

but with the precious
blood of Jesus

our Lamb without blemish
to behold.


“. . . conduct yourselves throughout the time of your sojourning here in fear;”

“knowing you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or like gold, from your aimless conduct received from your fathers,”

“but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

1 Peter 1:17,18,19 NKJV

Our inheritance is incorruptible

and does not fade

reserved for us
in heaven

by the power of God
who saves.


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”

“to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heave for you,”

“who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
