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.

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
patiently

we honor Him
who always judges

His children
righteously.

**********

“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
night

but now we too are
God’s people

called into His marvelous
light.

**********

“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

Let’s rest our hope
upon the grace

brought to us
by Christ

being obedient
and not conforming

to former lusts
and vice.

Genuineness Of Faith

 

We greatly rejoice
in all that still

waits ahead
for us

even while now
we’re grieved by trials

our faith glorifies
Jesus.

**********

“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,”

“that the genuineness of your faith, being made more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,”

“whom having not seen you love.”

1 Peter 1:6,7,8. NKJV
