          1 Peter 1:17-21
Introduction
What is "fear
 of God"?
How do you

1 Peter 1:17-21
1 Peter 1:17-21

17Since you call on a Father who judges each man's
work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in
reverent fear.

18For you know that it was not with perishable things such
as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty
way of life handed down to you from your forefathers,
19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without

blemish or defect.

20He was chosen before the creation of the world, but
was revealed in these last times for your sake.

21Through him you believe in God, who raised him from
the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are
in God.
