God’s Word brings us to birth and makes us grow.

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:22-2:3

ESV Text: 1 Peter 1:22-2:3


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 1 22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.(KJV)


(Alt. audio): Chapter: 2 1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 284:
Father of Mercies, in Thy Word

— Organ Audio

1. Father of mercies, in Thy Word 
What endless glory shines! 
Forever be Thy name adored 
For these celestial lines. 

2. Here may the blind and hungry come 
And light and food receive; 
Here shall the lowliest guest have room 
And taste and see and live. 

3. Here springs of consolation rise 
To cheer the fainting mind, 
And thirsting souls receive supplies 
And sweet refreshment find. 

4. Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice 
Spreads heavenly peace around, 
And life and everlasting joys 
Attend the blissful sound. 

5. Oh, may these heavenly pages be 
My ever dear delight; 
And still new beauties may I see 
And still increasing light! 

6. Divine Instructor, gracious Lord, 
Be Thou forever near; 
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word 
And view my Savior here.
