1 Peter · Exegesis of Light

If we be with Christ, who can truly be against us and prevail?

And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; [1 Peter 3:13-14]

Our conviction to do good must not stay in our desires. It must transcend that realm and thrust into the tangible plane of action. We must be the guardians of good, its deepest philosophers, its strongest advocates and soldiers…its strictest adherents. For the cause for Good is ours to advance in this dark fallen world.

Who can harm us if we are followers of that which is good?
Who can be against us if we are followers of Christ?
If we are with Christ, who can truly be against us and prevail?

Let us identify and embrace good within the infinite dimensions of the kingdom and Lordship of Jesus Christ. Let us reckon His will and purposes sublime and good. Let us align our entire being for this good we see in the light of His revealed person. For God is Good. The revelation of God in Christ is good. We must be followers of such heavenly truths-it is good! Selah

I see a generation of Christians rising in this era of the awakening. They take the resources given them in Christ and change the tangible world with its power. They touch multiple spheres of human engagement and lift many into the higher light of the Lord Jesus Christ. They push back relentlessly the frontiers of darkness and unleash floods and floods of the goodness of His Grace to deluge this parched land…and make it fertile and ready ultimately for the Kings Advent. Selah

These are the ones who wear the armor of light and carry the unbreakable staff of Faith. These are the ones aligned with God in Christ to do good and fulfill the purposes of God for their generation.

With such a mighty following, who can truly harm us? For when we do suffer for this cause, it is for the sake of righteousness. Peace and joy garrisons our heart with leaps of Grace!

Glory!
Glory to God!
See! We are more than conquerors!
Always!
