1 Peter 5:10 refers to “the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ.” God’s glory was powerfully manifested in Jesus (John 1:14-17), who was “full of grace and truth.” The New Testament goes on to reveal a God-breathed interconnectedness between grace and truth. Truth without grace is devastating. Grace without truth is deceitful. Grace with truth produces the sort of Christian Peter describes in 1 Peter 5:5-9.
If God really is “the God of all grace,” what does he want for us? This sermon is built on the rest of 1 Peter 5:10. God wants to restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. “To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen” (1 Pet 5:11).
