Text: 1 Peter 1:13-19; 22-25 NASB95 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.  As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,  but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;  because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”  If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth;  knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers,  but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.  Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,  for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.  For, “ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,  BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.” And this is the word which was preached to you.
Questions to Consider:
Expanded Scriptures to Consider:
The reformation came to be known as the protestant movement as new churches and denominations were formed in protest against the perceived corruption found in Catholicism at that time. There was a Latin slogan that served as the rallying cry of the reformers. Verbum Domini Manet in Aeternum, which translates as “the Word of the Lord remains forever."
This Latin slogan still rings true today. According to the Apostle Peter, "You have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring Word of God." Peter goes on to declare that "the Word of the Lord endures forever!"
