1 Peter · Exegesis of Light

An opportunity to make the brightness of today!

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
[1 Peter 4:7]

2. Be careful and earnest to make certain the fullness of your salvation.

The sands that mark the dispensation of Grace are rapidly depleting. Soon this wonderful epoch of Grace shall end….and then the end shall come. Selah

For those of us within the fold of Christ today, we have opportunity to be built up into the fullness of the measure of the stature of Christ. This opportunity is what burns strongly to make the brightness of today. Selah.

We must pay closest heed to the ministry of the Word and the Holy Spirit and build ourselves up into the perfection the Father has laid out for us in Christ. It must be done today. For when the trump shouts and the King heralds His descent, we must not be numbered with them who “gnash their teeth” in regret, for making losses on opportunity to grow in the Grace and Knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Therefore as we reckon the ebbing of the tides of time and the imminent return of the King, let us fuel our devotion with zeal for the Word of His Grace which is able to build us up and give us the inheritance rightfully ours in Christ.

Let us build ourselves with true stones and precious gems in Christ…that when that Day presents itself, we shall stand unashamed and most loved as we gaze deepest into our Lords eyes and kneel before Him in utmost reverence as we say Holy! Holy! Holy! You alone art worthy! Selah!

Let us live today with this vision constantly burning in our hearts and minds…let us be propelled by its fire…let us live sober today in its light…taking careful steps to make earnest and true the fullness of our salvation in Christ!

God is our helper!
