1 Peter 2
A new life in Christ needs suitable food, the word of God, like the infants that desire milk and make the best effort for it. As chosen generation and royal priest of Christ, we belong to one family of God, a people distinct from the world, of another spirit, with godly principle and practice which should not be compromised. So, we need to exhort one with another to keep from the worldly sins and the fleshly desires of men. A Christian conversation must be honest, they should behave properly, perform their duties consistently, and always remember that they are holy servants of God. Servants in those days were slaves, and used them cruelly, yet Peter told them to be subject to their masters with fear to dishonor or offend God. Christ's death was designed not only for an example of patience under sufferings, but He bore our sins, He bore the punishment of us all, and thereby satisfied Divine justice. Those who shall believe in this fact will be forgiven, justified and glorified on His return. God bless.
