Faith – A Spiritual Preservative
I found verse thirty-nine a wonderful reminder of the power of our faith. While most translations render the verse – “whose souls will be saved“, the NET version translates it like this: “But we are not among those who shrink back and thus perish, but are among those who have faith ‘and preserve their souls.’ “ I love this! It means the same thing, of course, as the other translations but it jumped off the page at me with the emphasis of faith’s longevity. Faith is a spiritual preservative – so powerful of a preservative – it will never expire.
Be sober and alert. Your enemy the devil, like a roaring lion, is on the prowl looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, strong in your faith, because you know that your brothers and sisters throughout the world are enduring the same kinds of suffering. 10 And, after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory in Christ will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 1 Peter 5:8-11Go deeper by clicking on the hyperlink verses
