Promises of God from 1 Peter
Below are selected promises of God from 1st Peter compiled by Kenneth Boa:
We have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood (1:2).
In God’s great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade (1:3-4).
It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that we were redeemed from the empty way of life we previously knew, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect (1:18-19).
We are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that we may declare the praises of him who called us out of darkness into his wonderful light (2:9).
Christ bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds we have been healed (2:24).
Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring us to God (3:18).
We can cast all our anxiety on God because he cares for us (5:7).
The God of all grace, who called us to his eternal glory in Christ, after we have suffered a little while, will himself restore us and make us strong, firm and steadfast (5:10).
