A Video Bible Study: “Putting on a Gentle and Quiet Spirit”
I just love this study! It doesn’t take long, but it has great take homes. Here is today’s Bible Verse and the ideas that came to my mind as I did the study:
If you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your sojourning in fear;knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God (1 Peter 1:17-21).
- If you call on The Father…then you should live in fear (reverence, respect). The knowledge of the value of our salvation should inform our way of living
- We must find our identity in Christ – we are sojourners, redeemed by incorruptible things (the precious blood of Christ)
- We are freed from aimlessness…now our lives have purpose (we were made in His likeness, but cannot be like Him because of the Fall)
- Yet God changes the way we think, transforms us, (Rom 12:2) so we are remade in His image.
- God’s steadfast, covenant-keeping love provokes our love and obedience (out of gratitude for the grace)
- A life of obedience to God = holy living
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect (Romans 12:2, NLT).

Happy Weekend! I hope as you sojourn, you remember your identity in Christ…for you were purchased with something Incorruptible. So walk in gratitude for the grace and feel the warmth of His Hesed, His steadfast love.
