Re:Verse passage – 1 Peter 1:1-9 (day four)
One of the most difficult doctrines to understand has historically been the doctrine of the Trinity. In our passage this week, as we set out on a study of 1 Peter, we see a picture of the combined work of each person of the Trinity. God the Father has established the work of salvation for the redemption of man. Jesus Christ, the Son, has given His blood as sacrifice for our sin, and we are to follow Him in obedience. The Holy Spirit provides the sanctifying work so that we can be presented blameless before God. God in His mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope. Following our trust in Jesus, we gain an inheritance in heaven that is secured and held by the Holy Spirit.
Love, hope, faith…the inexpressibly valuable gift of salvation is ours through the work of our Trinitarian God. We must never despair, regardless of the trials, that we serve a mighty God.
