Today it is estimated there will be 800 MILLION pieces of mail sent. That is a lot of greetings, and gifts, and packages.
Peter's circumstances were not as easy as ours. He did not have a hallmark card in which to write. But listen to the words he uses to greet the believers!
1 Peter 1
Greetings from Peter
1 "This letter is from Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ.
I am writing to God’s chosen people who are living as foreigners in the provinces of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.[a] 2 God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
May God give you more and more grace and peace."
God's chosen people! God the Father KNEW you and chose you!
You have obeyed Him.
You have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
What a profound greeting!
Have you become one of God's family?
Have you been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ?
This Christmas season would be a great time to become a child of God.
Send me a comment and I can lead you to do what I and hundreds of millions have done around the world.
