Beloved, how great and glorious is the truth of God’s purposes in Christ for His people, as we’ve been seeing recently from the letter of 1 Peter! I can’t encourage you enough to keep reading, praying, and meditating upon all that God has revealed in this portion of His Word. And as you read, pray, and meditate, keep striving by His grace to live faithfully as “elect exiles” – as those who have been foreknown by the Father, sanctified by the Spirit, brought to obedient faith, and sprinkled with the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
And may God give us grace to love one another earnestly from a pure heart (1 Pet. 1:22), praying and caring for one another in ways that encourage these glorious truths to become all the more evident in our lives.
It is a great joy to share life in Christ with you in His body at RCG, and to pray and serve with you to these very ends. Soli Deo Gloria!
