WASTED OPPORTUNITIES:

WASTED OPPORTUNITIES (1 Peter 4:17)  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:18)  And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? (1 Peter 4:19)  Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

1. His Abundant Mercy:

1. His Abundant Mercy (1 Peter 1:3)  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (1 Peter 1:4)  To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, (1 Peter 1:5)  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:6)  Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: (1 Peter 1:7)  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth , though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: (1 Peter 1:8)  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: (1 Peter 1:9)  Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:10)  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: (1 Peter 1:11)  Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. (1 Peter 1:12)  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into . (1 Peter 1:13)  Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ ;

2. Our Manner of Conversation:

2. Our Manner of Conversation (1 Peter 1:15)  But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; (1 Peter 1:16)  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:17)  And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: (1 Peter 1:18)  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; (1 Peter 1:19)  But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: (1 Peter 1:20)  Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, (1 Peter 1:21)  Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God. (1 Peter 1:22)  Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: (1 Peter 1:23)  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. (1 Peter 1:24)  For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth , and the flower thereof falleth away: (1 Peter 1:25)  But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you .

3. As Children, Desire :

3. As Children, Desire (1 Peter 2:2)  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (1 Peter 2:3)  If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. (1 Peter 2:4)  To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, (1 Peter 2:5)  Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:6)  Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (1 Peter 2:7)  Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, (1 Peter 2:8)  And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. (1 Peter 2:9)  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:10)  Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. (1 Peter 2:11)  Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul ; (1 Peter 2:12)  Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation .

CONCLUSION:

CONCLUSION (1 Peter 3:8)  Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: (1 Peter 3:9)  Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. (1 Peter 3:10)  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: (1 Peter 3:11)  Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. (1 Peter 3:12)  For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
