October 10, 2022 - 1 Peter 5

Peter gives instruction to those who lead in the church and to all believers. He writes that the chief Shepherd will appear and that we, as God’s children, will receive the unfading crown of glory. Peter comes back to this theme over and over. He wants us to grasp this truth, that in the midst of suffering and persecution we have so great a hope. What encouragement to us, that there is a day coming, and what a day that will be! How, then, shall we live in the current age? Peter tells us: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you” (5:6-7). May I, a second day in a row, quote two song writers?


Be not dismayed whate’er betide,

God will take care of you;

Beneath his wings of love abide,

God will take care of you.

God will take care of you,

through ev’ry day, o’er all the way;

He will take care of you,

God will take care of you. -- Civilla D. Martin (1904)


What a day that will be,

When my Jesus I shall see,

And I look upon His face,

The One who saved me by His grace;

When He takes me by the hand,

And leads me through the Promised Land,

What a day, glorious day that will be. --Jim Hill 1955
