Daniel speaks on the subject “God Speaks” a third time – this time concentrating on God speaking through His Spirit. The Spirit of God assures us, teaches us and intercedes for us! Whether God speaks to us through His Word, His Son or His Spirit (or by some other means), the important thing is our response. Will we keep in step with The Spirit?
As well as 1 Peter 5, Peter looks at James 4 and Eph 5 as he explains that we can have peace through submission to God. We are challenged to humble ourselves and to caste our anxiety on God because He cares for us – He will lift us up in due time. “Rules without relationship leads to rebellion.”
2 Cor 5:17 says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new has come.” We need to remember where our personal worth comes from. We take a look through 2 Timothy to see how we should live ‘in Christ’ and are reminded again that we “were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.” (1 Cor 6:20).
