1 Peter-2-4

Be the Stone in the Sight of God Regardless of Man Rejecting You

2 minutes reading time (301 words)
In this chapter, Peter talks about a type of people to put away their evil deeds. Their plans of malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all slander. He is calling them to grow into salvation. Moreover, they were rejected, before or after with man. God has chosen them and precious.

So don't give up on God's plan of salvation. Yes, deceptions exist. Evil is alive and thriving. Once you see how it all works out through Jesus, you'll understand the narrow path.

The main question people would ask. Why come to God? In my humble words, we don't understand what evil is. I have come across some wicked and sinister people, pure evil. Through Jesus, there are the forces that go beyond. I pray people don't go through this darkness. The awesome news is Jesus did it all for us. He is AMAZING!
