Discussion for 1 Peter 1:16

  • Victoria on 1 Peter 1:16
    What and how do you worship god
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    Jesus taught us to pray the Lords Prayer. I was taught, after each sentence to pause and worship, like: Hallowed be thy Name...and then you add your worship to that statement.

    Sometimes I put on worship music and sing with the choir. It loosens up our inward parts so we can sing, or cry, and begin to release all those cares that have us bound up tight.

    Dark thoughts are demons that don't want you to worship God and Jesus. If you start serenading God; the demons are going to leave!
  • Growing Closer to Your Father - in Reply on 1 Peter 1:16
    You read His Word, with new born again eyes. To see His love unfolded throughout our history with Him.

    To run the limits of wickedness until in agony of soul we bow our knee and ask Him to come in and help us finally. And He does.

    I had to become very old to hear a Fathers heart poured out in the Book of Lamentations. His sorrow over a nation and a people who would stubbornly reject Him time and time again. The pure pressure of Gods heart would almost make my heart implode, because me and people He loved would just wander away.

    How could we be such rockheads? And yet every time we turn and mourn the sins we did that drove us away from Him, is what drives us back into fellowship with Him.

    He is so Holy, He cannot look upon sin; or hasten to us. He had to give His very own Son, to mediate for us. A Son that was willing to show us what Father is like.

    How, please tell me how can we just step over that, and ask unfeeling questions like: is inter-racial marriage ok?

    And then you want someone else to search the Bible for you .... because you don't search the scriptures yourself.

    God used to spend the early evenings, walking with and talking with Adam. He still does that With people who have their hearing tuned in, by way of The Holy Spirit.

    You can have that relationship that you truly want, but are afraid to lean into and make it happen. Turn the sounds of the world OFF, sit in the floor by your bed, still your mind, listen. Pray what is on your mind. Listen.

    Sing something your spirit loves. I sing an old song named: and He walks with me and He talks with me, and tells me that I'm His own.... Other days I may cry. Why? Because God the Father is what the heart longs to know. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father; and you can sit and ask Him to pray for people who desperately need Him now. Like: remember my brother in your prayers, for he needs a miracle in his relationships with those that love him and want him to be saved.

    Could God have said it any clearer. Be ye holy, for I Am holy.
  • BSP on 1 Peter 1:16
    Jehovah God is the epitome of holy Our life must reflect that holiness if we are to be close to Him We should make sure that we are physically mentally and spiritually clean in order to be holy to God

  • Nice cj on 1 Peter 1:16
    The word of GOD is one and nothing on this earth ca ever change it. Be ye holy, for I am holy.
