Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 5:10


5:10 Now the God of all grace - By which alone the whole work is begun, continued, and finished in your soul. After ye have suffered a while - A very little while compared with eternity. Himself - Ye have only to watch and resist the devil: the rest God will perform. Perfect - That no defect may remain. Stablish - That nothing may overthrow you. Strengthen - That ye may conquer all adverse power. And settle you - As an house upon a rock. So the apostle, being converted, does now strengthen his brethren.

    Being strong willed, God has been longsuffering - still have a long ways to go! Thank God that God's righteousness for us is a gift through the abundance of Grace! Romans 5:17 KJV For if by one man's offence death reigned by one much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. God is working with us to Sanctify us and He will finish that work until the day of Jesus Christ! Philippians 1:6 KJV Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: What really helps is to take Romans 12:1-2 seriously everyday and to take on the challenge of letting the Holy Spirit, tempered with Scripture and Prayer, guide you every moment of every day. One may never reach that standard, but God knows your willingness and your heart and that is what Matters to Him most!

    Thanks to Jesus for the blood that shed for us. He have come to give us life. Our God is a promising God and a loving Father to us all. He will never leave us nor forsake us. Our job now is to trust him and obey his words and commandments until rapture. We must live like Jesus and follow Jesus if we want to have an everlasting life. God is good all the time and his loves endures forever. Keep Praising God and thanks him for what he have done into our lives. There is no other Jehovah its only Jesus our Savior, Provider and our Peace. God loves us ...Amen
