Protected…Through Faith for Salvation

In 1 Peter 1:3-5 the apostle Peter, in praising God, makes a powerful statement of hope for the faithful; Christians who are led by the Spirit, bearing the fruit that includes “faithfulness” (Galatians 5:22, 23).  Read Peter’s words:  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

There is a lot of information here, but let us focus on that phrase we’re using as a title to this post.  How are we protected by the power of God through faith?  Those who are of faith are those living the Spirit-led life, rather than according to the lusts of the flesh.  God uses His power to save those who have the faith to live in faithful submission to His will.

Wow!  God’s love is awesome!!  He loves you, you know, and so do I.
