The Purified Man

ENGLISH

Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart.—1 Peter 1:22

Most men do not think of themselves as pure. But in God's sight, a submitted man has a purified soul. Your soul was bought with Christ's blood sacrifice, as we discovered yesterday. This was determined by God and announced by his Word, and it's the truth. Your disbelief in your own purity does not change God's truth. You can not believe his truth away. But you can live choosing not to accept it. Accept your purity today. It's been paid in full. So live! Live as you have never lived before. Live in true brotherly love.

ASK THIS: Are you rejecting purity in disbelief?

DO THIS: Accept your purity. Live and love!

PRAY THIS: God, I reject my own disbelief. You call me pure; therefore, I believe I am a purified man.

Ransomed Man

ENGLISH

Knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ.—1 Peter 1:18-19

You should know this. You were ransomed. You were bought and thus brought back by God. He purchased your debt. And he didn't pay it with money or precious metal, but something far more valuable. The sinless blood of His Son. And in this act, he ransomed you from a prison of your own making—a prison of sin, death, and destruction. And life unransomed is futile, so live in His freedom. It's precious.

ASK THIS: Are you living in captivity or like the ransomed man you are?

DO THIS: Forget the unproductive ways of your past. Live today like you are ransomed.

PRAY THIS: God, thanks for buying me back! May I live today not as a captive but in freedom as a free man.

Exile Conduct

ENGLISH

And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile.—1 Peter 1:17

If you feel like an exile in your country right now—just wait it will worsen. This place is destined for chaos and disorder. But, get this, you have always been an exile. From the day you began your adventure with the Father, you bore a new name and a new identity. You now have a new home, and it's way better than here; it's there—heaven. So this earth, and our country, are only temporary. We are just passing through. But while you are here, you need to conduct yourself accordingly, for the great Judge is coming, and he is fair and impartial, and he's coming soon.

ASK THIS: How are you conducting yourself?

DO THIS: Live for there. This world is not your home.

PRAY THIS: God, with so much evil and deception, I need your help focusing on heaven. May I conduct myself as a citizen of that kingdom while living this world.

He's The GOAT You Are Holy

ENGLISH

But as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”—1 Peter 1:15-16

There is only one who is the Greatest Of All Time, and he called you "holy." Regardless of what you think about you and what others think about you, it's only what God thinks about you that actually matters. And when God calls you "holy," this has consequences on your identity as a man. No longer are you sinful, even though your flesh may remind you of your former ways. Instead, you need to act in your new identity and conduct yourself accordingly. He even wrote it down so you would remember.

ASK THIS: Are you questioning your holiness.

DO THIS: Stop it. You are holy.

PRAY THIS: God, delete the tapes in my mind about my former identity. Help me believe where I have unbelief that you make me whole and holy.

Reformed

ENGLISH

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance.—1 Peter 1:14

There are times we need guidance, instruction, and direction from someone wiser than ourselves. We may not like it at the moment, but often this instruction is for our benefit. And one instruction all men need regards our passions. They are devious and insidious. They will call us back to former ways. But these ways are ignorant. So don't let your passions persuade you. Be reformed not conformed.

ASK THIS: What passion from your past calling to you?

DO THIS: Be reformed not conformed.

PRAY THIS: God, remake and reform my passions. Align them with your will.

Mind Action

ENGLISH

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.—1 Peter 1:13

A big part of living as a follower of Christ is being alert. Alert to your revelation. This is different than the mindset of your former ways. Your former mind lived daily inebriated in fleshly desires, wants, and needs. But instead, you have to get off the sauce. You must be sober-minded. And this is done with daily preparation, by preaching to your mind about that moment Christ was revealed to you.

Start today differently, by preparing your mind for Godly action. Consider what needs to get done today and how you can consciously redeem each moment in a God-honoring way.

ASK THIS: What needs to get done today?

DO THIS: Do each task in a Godly way.

PRAY THIS: God, make my mind alert to you will not mine.

Prophecy Announced

ENGLISH

It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.—1 Peter 1:12

Some people in this life are truly selfless. They consider others even more than themselves. They plan and serve for the benefit of others. And so did the prophets of old. They served us long ago, with benefits we receive today. In doing so, they prepared the way for the good news announced in Peter's time and is now announced to us.

But the same Spirit that spoke to the prophets, and was preached in the first century, indwells you. It was sent to you from heaven. And these things are so special even angels longed to see them. This means that you are something special. In you lives the revelation of something that angels longed to see. Do you see it? It's in you!

ASK THIS: Have you looked deep within today?

DO THIS: Acknowledge the Spirit that lives within you.

PRAY THIS: Father, Son, and Spirit, may I become more aware of your presence. May I be not just aware but overcome by your presence. Amen.

They Figured It Out

They Figured It Out

ENGLISH

Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.—1 Peter 1:10-11

I know I feel a need to figure out what's happening in our world, but words like this cause me to reconsider. You see, there were greater men than even me, that God elected in times long past to prophesy. And these prophets were men who inquired carefully. They were not quick and hasty but listened carefully to the Word of the Lord and predicted the suffering of Christ. And it's his suffering that's more important than our suffering, in that his suffering results in glory and subsequent glories that ends all suffering. So while you may be tempted to interpret the signs of these times, remember that it's been done. And the glory we seek has already be realized. The question is, do you believe it, and do you receive it?

ASK THIS: Do you believe and receive the prophets of old and what they told us about the suffering and salvation of Jesus Christ?

DO THIS: Believe and receive salvation from eternal suffering—in Jesus's name.

PRAY THIS: God, I need you to rescue me from suffering. I believe your suffering was for me so that I would not have to suffer in eternity. I give my life and concerns to you.

Inexpressible Joy

Inexpressible Joy

ENGLISH

Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible.—1 Peter 1:8

There are things in this life that can bring joy. But even more, there are things we don't see that can bring greater joy. One of these things is a relationship with the Creator of all things. Belief in him emits joy. And it's joy in insane quantities, so much so it's inexpressible. So, if you are looking for joy in this world, remember you may find it—momentarily and in small quantities. But if you want lasting joy, a joy without end, you'll only find it by faith and in God. And even then, it is so inexpressible it will be hard to understand, explain, and contain.

ASK THIS: Do you need joy?

DO THIS: Ask God for it.

PRAY THIS: God, I am desperate for joy. Turn my sadness into inexpressible joy.

Hot And Refined

ENGLISH

...so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.—1 Peter 1:7

Tests produce something. They produce refined men. And most men don't like the refining process, yet they love the value it produces.

If you want a more genuine faith, then your faith needs to be tested? You have to get into the fire, be pushed to the limits, and willingly submit to the refining process. Don't worry; you won't perish, but weaknesses of the flesh will be incinerated. And your value will increase, preparing you for the day of revelation resulting in praise, glory, and honor.

ASK THIS: Are you hesitating to step into the fire?

DO THIS: Get in—all in.

PRAY THIS: God, I beg to you—refine me! Purify me. Make me whole!

Mixed Emotions

ENGLISH

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials.—1 Peter 1:6

This last year has produced a lot of emotions in men—more than we care to admit. We have felt many emotions all at the same time and on some days more than others. These emotions have the power to alter our gaze and make men confused, angry, and calloused. But Peter demands a positive response, one that's proactive yet still full of emotion. It's a response activated by the man who is fixed on the revelation of God in a time of various trials. And when we are fixed in faith in God when we have been grieved, we know a joy that leads to rejoicing.

ASK THIS: Are you full of emotion?

DO THIS: Fix your eyes on God, endure the suffering, and rejoice.

PRAY THIS: God, life is confusing, but you are not. Help me fix my eyes on you. Let me rejoice.
