1 Peter 1:2 NIV
 who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, to be obedient to Jesus Christ and sprinkled with his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance.
Chosen…..to be obedient to Jesus…..! That is our calling and purpose – to be like Jesus and to bring his love and grace to the world around us. Peter’s readers were going through tough times but he reminds them that this is not wasted but rather that God is at work in them and through them. Today is just the same and we can find opportunities to be obedient to Jesus in the details of today!
Lord Jesus, help me to honour you in everything I do and say today that I might know your grace and peace.
