Scripture Union Daily Guide 4 May 2022 MESSAGE
There are some words that Peter uses to describe those who have become God’s children through faith in Christ. Pick out the words in vs.2,5 and 9 and write them in your notebook. Note that all these are describing Christians as a group. All who have received Christ as Saviour have His Spirit in them and are therefore alive. The new life, however, comes along with many responsibilities: ?
To turn our backs on our old sinful ways that work against the unity of the body (v.1) ? To grow by feeding on God’s word daily (v.2). God’s word is the spiritual food we need for rounded growth. We should have a good appetite for it, just like hungry new‐born babes have for milk. That is the only way to grow in faith. ? To use the different gifts God has given us to help the Church grow to maturity (vs.4‐5, cf., Romans 12:6‐8). ?
To serve as priests by bringing God’s message of salvation to the people and interceding for them before God (vs. 4, 9). (We are called a royal priesthood because our Lord was King by descent from David and Priest by His sacrificial death.)
Action: In what ways will you be a priest to the people that cross your path today?
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
• Dear Lord, create in me a hunger for your word and the desire to live by it.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with 3 John 1:2
