A Peculiar People

1 Pet. 2: 9-12

Christians are a peculiar people in the sense of being different from others. The Bible even says that we have been bought with a price (I Cor. 6:20). As peculiar people, therefore, we have to be living in a peculiar way that is different from the conventional. No wonder this passage says as pilgrims and sojourners here on earth we have to abstain from fleshly lusts which are against our spiritual progress. This means that in all our contacts with the world we have to avoid being defiled through contamination by the things of the world. Our lives have to manifest good works that will glorify God in the sight of others around. Check your life. Does it bring glory to God or a reproach to His name?

Point of Emphasis:         Your works will show whose servant you are.

Prayer Point:                  God, help me to live my life in purity to give glory to You.

UN PEUPLE ACQUIS

1PIERRE 2:9-12

Les chrétiens sont un peuple acquis dans le sens d’être différents des autres. La Bible même dit que nous avons été acquis à un prix. (1Co.6:20). En tant que peuple acquis, nous devons donc vivre d’une manière spéciale qui soit différente de la manière conventionnelle. N’est-ce pas la raison pour laquelle ce passage dit qu’en tant pèlerins et voyageurs ici-bas, nous devons nous abstenir des convoitises charnelles lesquelles sont contre notre progrès spirituel. Cela veut dire que dans tous nos contacts avec le monde, nous devons éviter d’être souillés par la contamination des choses de ce monde. Notre vie doit manifester de bonnes œuvres qui glorifieront Dieu devant ceux qui sont autour de nous. Examine ta vie. Apporte-t-elle gloire à Dieu ou est-elle un reproche à Dieu ?

Point essentiel : Tes œuvres montreront celui dont tu es serviteur.

Axe de prière : Dieu, aide-moi à vivre ma vie dans la pureté pour te donner gloire.
