1 Peter 1:2

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 2 Who are chosen sojourners according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, being set apart by the Spirit for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ. May grace and peace be yours in full measure. [They have been set apart, but their obedience and the sprinkling of blood is yet to come. Notice these people have been chosen to make the journey; they have not yet completed the journey, and no journey is instantly started and completed. What journey?—the journey of faith from beginning belief and hope to salvation: freedom from sin, the kingdom of God, and then union with God; to have been cleansed and perfected forever, protected from ever sinning again.]
