|1 Peter 2:1-5|
1 Therefore laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisies, envy, and all evil speaking,
2 Yearn like newborn babies for pure, spiritual milk so that you may grow up to salvation,1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Listen to and obey my voice; listen to my sweet words of wisdom. If you pay attention and obey, it results in union with God. He joins with our cleansed nature. We must become like Him to merge with Him."]
3 If indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
4 Coming to him the Living Stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God, and precious,
5 You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
|Philippians 2:12 |
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation is to be delivered from sin. Salvation is being freed from even the desire of your sins." In His messages to the seven churches, Jesus mentions to every church, (all seven), how their works are key. Jesus said, I have not found your works perfect before God. Rev 3:2-3. Jesus wants perfect works.]
