I Peter 2 "Living Godly"

Posted on February 25, 2016 at 2:07 PM
1 Peter 2 New International Version (NIV) " Living Godly "

Spiritual Growth

2 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

The Living Stone and a Chosen People

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion,  a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,”
and, "A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.”They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.  But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

Living Godly
Dear friends, I urge you, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. Live such good lives among others that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.  Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority, as the authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s want you to live. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor God.  But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.“He committed no sin,and no deceit was found in his mouth.”When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

God is a powerful and a good God to us human, being like him is a hard one to do. Living like the ways of God is very difficult to get as an example of his as being a God. I am a sinner trying to be a perfect one but I cannot do this on my own but with the mercy of God. I cannot search for my inner self that sometimes I am wondering if my mistakes will be a lesson or just giving me a stress experience to handle. Thanks for sharing this with me and I learn something out of it, you open the door in my mind to wisdom. I am encouraged at the same time I am so sad because I realized something which is not the right time for me to share it with you.
