The True Grace of God
Passage: 1 Peter 5:12–14
"The delicate balance between the indicative and imperative is preserved here. Grace has grasped every believer in Jesus Christ, and believers have been begotten by God's grace (1:3). Still, they must stand in the grace that has secured them. Grace does not cancel out the imperative but establishes it." —Thomas R. Schreiner, 1, 2 Peter, Jude, 249-250.
