Our Daily Bread Meditation for June 4, 2012

… so that through them you may come to share in the divine nature.” (2 Peter 1:4)

Imagine you have just received an invitation to a birthday party, baby shower, or wedding from someone close to you. Your heart is filled with excitement as you open the invitation to find out the date and time of the celebration. You eagerly look forward to the event, a time of celebration when your friend isn’t asking much—just that you show up so that you can enjoy the conver-sations, the food, and the...

Our Daily Bread Meditation for May 29, 2012

“As he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct.” (1 Peter 1:15)

At any other time in the church year, we might find this exhortation intimidating. There’s no way I can be as holy as Jesus, certainly not in every single thing I do! It’s just not humanly possible, no matter how pure my inten­tions and strong my willpower. I can’t possibly eliminate selfishness from my nature. I can’t love the way God loves.

True enough. This...

“… A new birth to a living hope.” (1 Peter 1:3)

“Yes,” your doctor says. “The test results confirm it. You are preg­nant.” The excitement you feel on hearing these words is indescribable. You’re having your first child!

As the months progress, you find yourself focusing less on yourself and more on the little person you are carrying. It’s all about the baby now. At fleeting moments you may think about the pain of childbirth or the nighttime feedings...

St. Mark

Your brothers and sisters throughout the world undergo the same sufferings. (1 Peter 5:9)

Let’s face it. Suffering is a part of life in this world. No one can escape it, not even the greatest saints. So let’s take the opportunity on this feast of St. Mark, to see how one of the church’s shining lights handled life’s slings and arrows.

Tradition tells us that St. Mark is the same John Mark who accompa­nied Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey. For s...

2 Pt 1  —  FOR SURE

"It was not by way of cleverly concocted myths that we taught you about the coming in power of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we were eyewitnesses of His sovereign majesty." —2 Peter 1:16-17
"Besides, we possess the prophetic message as something altogether reliable." —2 Peter 1:19

Jesus promised He would come back a second time. Seventy years later, He still hadn't returned and many people wondered whether His promise was true. Many people today are also doubtf...

1 Pt 1  —  OBEDIENCE SCHOOL

"By obedience to the truth you have purified yourselves for a genuine love of your brothers." —1 Peter 1:22

Peter described the Christian life as "a life of obedience to Jesus Christ and purification with His blood" (1:2). The church of Peter's time was being made holy through purification and obedience in the midst of suffering.

Prayer: Father, may I express my faith and love by obeying Your commands that I most resist.
Promise: "Praised be the Go...
