Issue 560 – Verse of the Week

September 15th – September 21st, 2022


Preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.    1 Peter 1:13


The apostle Paul wrote often of setting your mind… on things above, on things that are excellent, on things of the Spirit. He encourages you to let God’s word transform your mind. In this week’s verse, Peter urges you to be sober-minded and mentally prepared for action. That means you hold fast to sound spiritual principles, not allowing yourself to be captivated by outside influences. At a time when the nation is sorely divided, and the things of Christ are considered by some to be “dangerous,” it is essential to keep your focus on the Lord and His purposes for you. As you prepare for action, never forget that your hope needs to be set also—set on the return of Jesus Christ. Maranatha! O Lord, come!
