1 Peter 1:13 – Prepare Your Minds for Action

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: Peter has explained that Jesus has “caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.”  He goes on to say that this salvation is something “into which angels long to look.”

1 Peter 1:13 “Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Observation: Since we stand in the grace of Christ, we are to “prepare our minds for action.”  Grace motivates, not mandates, action.

Application: I want to meditate on the grace of Christ today.  I need to consciously prepare my mind for action.  “Lord, use me today.  Let Your grace motivate my actions.”

Are you preparing your mind for action?
