Stand Firm

In the final instalment of our 1 Peter series, we look at Peter’s final exhortation for his readers to stand firm in the true grace of God. It sometimes takes all our energy just to stand firm in the faith. However, we are encouraged that we don’t stand firm in our strength, but we are secure knowing what Jesus has won for us. We stand firm knowing that although we will fall, He never will. It’s His grace that gives us confidence to stand until the end!


1 Peter 5:12–14 (Listen)

Final Greetings

12 By Silvanus, a faithful brother as I regard him, I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it. 13 She who is at Babylon, who is likewise chosen, sends you greetings, and so does Mark, my son. 14 Greet one another with the kiss of love.

Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
