Read Introduction to 1 Peter

“Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”


that is to be brought to you

When Jesus comes back again, He will bring full grace to us. We will need grace to enter the presence of God. This is the grace of salvation from the very existence of sin.

Jesus brings grace unto us. “Be brought” can translate “is being brought.” Eternal life begins at the moment a person trusts Christ as his Savior (v.3). Hebrews 6:18 says,

“that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil.”


When we stand before God at the Judgment Seat of Christ, we will stand in the grace of Christ.


When God judges Christians at the Judgment Seat of Christ, we will not stand in our works. We will stand solely on his grace. That is all we will plead.
