People's Bible Notes for 1 Peter 1:14


1Pe 1:14 As obedient children. An invariable characteristic of all Christians. The divisions between God's children and the children of this world turns on obedience to God. Not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance. The spirit of obedience would cause them to turn away from their former sinful life when in ignorance of the gospel.
