You Were Ransomed; 1 Peter 1:17-21

Our text today calls us to conduct ourselves with fear. Psalm 147 describes fear this way: the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. So then, to fear, is to stand in awe of God Almighty, to take refuge in him, and to hope in his steadfast love. We are to conduct ourselves, we are to live our entire lives with this kind of “fear”. We are to emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally place our hope, our livelihoods, our strength, our security, our safety, our well-being, everything onto Christ in fear. It is a lovely command because when we do fear, we find oceans of joy. But we don’t so much see that, we barely dip our toes in the water because of our sin. We find ourselves NOT hoping, NOT fearing, NOT standing in awe of anything about God and so we go on in life placing our fear in man or in our things… We feel more secure with locked doors than we ever have with God. The truth is that we need a proper motivation to fear God.

Hope Fully, Be Holy; 1 Peter 1:13-16

When Leah and I got married, I became the guy for all the oil changes on the cars, all of the protection, all of the stuff around the house that needs fixing (and Leah I’m pretty sure thought either all men were Chip Gaines, or that at the very least I was because I was a roofer and so she would say things to you guys about me just needing to build a wall… I was like, it’s pretty much exclusively roofing… I can roof the wall. And now that I am a dad, I’m usually the one that gets the crying baby back from other people, instead of that being me… And trust me, if you have never had kids, nobody else changes diapers but parents… And there is so much responsibility… I am just waiting for my first grey whisker to come up. Here is the idea, since I am a husband and a dad, I act as husband and dad. This is the idea that Peter is writing toward… When he writes the word, “Therefore”. He’s saying, “Since this is doctrinally true, we now move to dutiful actions.” Since we have been adopted into the family of God by the sweetest grace in the universe, God now commands us to act in accordance.

Things Into Which Angels Long To Look; 1 Peter 1:10-12

God, through Peter, is encouraging us to look at salvation as greater than anything else in the world. When Peter writes this, he’s focusing attention to the thing that should matter more than anything else. If salvation is what God says it is, then you and I can face anything this fallen world has to give us and stand firm in it.
