1Peter 1:13  Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
 
Today we continue here in 1Peter 1:13 in digging out these commands we must abide by in keeping our character Christ-like.  Next we are told to “be sober”.  The word sober here carries us deeper into this command to guard our mind.  Here in this particular verse “sober” means to abstain from alcohol.  Abstain means to stay away from.  Many Christians think it is ok to social drink as long as they do not get drunk or as long as they do it in their own home.  Wrong!  The scriptures command Christians to stay away from alcohol.  Many folks attempt to argue that Jesus turned the water into alcohol.  Why would the Lord talk out of both sides of His mouth?!  He commands in proverbs to not even look at it and He says that it is very unwise to drink it.  Before we argue that Jesus is ok with alcohol we better study the meaning of “wine”.  The word wine in the scriptures sometimes means alcohol and then sometimes it simply means fresh squeezed grape juice.  Sometimes it means old grape juice.  Here lies another vital reason to stick with the true Word of God.  We could go further in the discussion of the ways to keep our minds sober.  What about mind-altering drugs.  Illegal drugs alter the mind into much evil.  To partake of illegal drugs is just plain not right in the eyes of God.  No matter if it is ok in the eyes of man …it is wrong.  What about being addicted to prescription drugs?  This too falls into the category of soberness of the mind.  There are prescription drugs that alter the mind.  The scripture says this is wrong.  Anything that carries the mind into a trance or an evil state of uncontrol is not right with God.  Now, I do realize there are temporary situations with our health that require temporary medicines for surgery, sickness and such.  Let’s not be silly here.  The Lord allowed the modern techniques of medicine for our good.  But to be addicted to mind altering drugs and to desire them for mind bending reasons in not Christ-like.  We have a strong verse here in 1Peter.  We must keep our minds sober and guarded in order to have a Christ-like witness.  Amen.

1Peter 1:13 …and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
 
Our verse for the past few days is one that is loaded with wise advice and command for the child of God.  Our Godly character is very important in presenting an acceptable witness as we live here on earth.  Today we take a look at the end of our verse.  We are encouraged to focus on our fate.  The child of God is under eternal protection.  We may have to endure some troubles and trials here on earth, but there is coming a day that all this will be in the past and we will enter our eternal resting place with the Lord Jesus.  Our verse mentions the grace that awaits us.  This grace is grace beyond the grace that we enjoy today.  Today we are living in saving grace.  This is the grace that saves our soul till the day of redemption.  Eph. 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.  The day of redemption is the day our time here is up and we enter into the realm of eternity.  So we have grace to save us here, but good news!  We also have grace to save us there.  Because of the supplied, shed, sacrificed blood of the Lord Jesus we are saved throughout eternity.  John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  Let's ponder on that truth for a moment.  Perfect grace... forever!  Perfect, perpetual grace!  The grace we have here is a shaving of the forever grace that awaits our redeemed soul.  Hallelujah Amen!  We will pick up here in this verse Monday.  Thank God for now grace and forever grace!  Amen.

1Peter 1:13 …and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

This verse is loaded with advice in maintaining our Christian character.  We pick up today where we left off Friday.  We were paused at this wonderful word, "hope".  The word “hope” in our text means to expect it and have confidence in it.  We have assurance that the Lord has grace for the judgment.  By being a child of God we can know we are safe.  Eph. 1:13-14 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.  The grace we enjoy right now is only an earnest of what is to come.  This grace we have now is enjoyed with fleshly bodies.  The grace to be revealed in that day is grace that will be enjoyed with glorified bodies!  1Cor. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?   56  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Glory Hallelujah!!!  You think we are enjoying grace now… you just wait till we are issued that eternal grace that awaits us at that day.  In the twinkling of an eye we will be transported from a supply of sufficient grace for our mortal beings into the celestial realm of pure grace for our immortal glorified beings.  Our minds cannot wrap around such a powerful truth.  Thank God for grace for the mind.  Amen.

1Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,  52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
 
I am thankful for translation!  What is translation?  It is the process of moving something from one place to another.  Amen!!  Praise the Lord for our upcoming translation.  Soon and very soon we are going to see the King.  Soon and very soon we will be translated from this world to another world.  Soon and very soon we will be translated from this corrupted body of flesh into a glorified body of perfection.  Our new body will have no ailments, no sickness, no imperfections and …no sin!  Let’s read the rest of our text.  1Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.  54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?   56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.  57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  What a day that will be when our Jesus we shall see.  What a day that will be when He takes us by the hand and leads us through the promise land.  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name!  We will end today with the last verse of our text.  1Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  I am thankful today for conviction, conversion, salvation, position and for our soon to come translation.  Amen.


For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
