Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.  1 Peter 4:8 (NIV). A quick recap:   Peter reminds us that love helps us to be sober and alert.   Love provides for vigilance.   Fear doesn’t.   Fear isn’t love, and love doesn’t show itself in fear.   Peter said this after reminding us thatContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 23 July 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 9 July 2020

…and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God.  It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.  1 Peter 3:21-22 (NIV). Water savesContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 9 July 2020”

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.  1 Peter 3:8 (NIV). Like Paul, Peter implores his friends (and us) to exhibit some Godly behavior.   Couldn’t we use some of that now! Actually, I’m betting you’ll find we could use that in any generation.   Our world is living through someContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 22 June 2020”

Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 16 June 2020

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.

Have you ever really lovedContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from 1 Peter, 16 June 2020”

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  Philippians 2:9-11.

Practical Proverbial, from Titus, 15 August 2019

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having theContinue reading “Practical Proverbial, from Titus, 15 August 2019”

Encourage older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, love, and patient endurance.  Titus 2:2 (EHV).
