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.

    D. Painter - that was really very inspired to you of the Lord. To 'dig' out the corroborating verses like this - is a beautiful thing.

    This vers is a very dependable anchor to the victory. In real life situation there if your mind is not sober nothing inspired you can do. Therefore, for one to work effectively in the vine yard must be sober .
  • Irene123
    Eunice. T. (if you ever see this) - you are so very right about our life in Christ being 'smooth'; Yes, we will have trials to test us, but God never puts on us more than we can bear, and knowing that makes our walk with Him - a smooth one. Our trials are nothing compared to the Heaven that awaits us. " ... Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame, for the JOY that was set before Him."
  • Wayne
    Sean, 1 Cor.5:10 tells us we would have to leave this planet to not associate with the sinners of this world. Pray to the Lord for grace, each day, to live in that situation and be a witness for the Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. GB
  • Irene123
    V. 13 - " ... and so doth Marcus my son." We know Peter was married (Matt. 8:14; Mk.1:30) so I just wonder if this was his issue or a 'spiritual' son? We know Paul was not married, nor was he a hypocrite as some on here with deviate minds affirm, and that Timothy was his 'spiritual son. God did NOT use hypocrites to write His word.
