Chapter Two –The True Grace of God Calls for Correct Thinking for God’s People

As we walk through this next section of God’s Word (1 Peter 1:13-2:10), all of the priorities and responsibilities are related to being God’s chosen people.

Peter is telling his first century readers and us today that our primary responsibility in Christ is to be a holy people, living the kind of life that is appropriate for those whose personal identity, ultimate destiny and present reality are determined by the grace of a Holy God. This is where the Apostle is headed in this letter.
