QTVOTD: Affirmation through scripture…

“Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.” 1 Peter 1:10-12 ->me: Holy cow!  I forgot how intense Peter’s instruction and education of scripture is.  The big thing that stood out to me today was how blessed we are to live in a time where we are direct beneficiaries of Jesus’ work on the cross and resurrection; that all the work the Old Testament prophets did to seek what the scriptures meant and whether the prophesy God was revealing to them would be experienced in their lifetime, was actually work to define our current state of reality.  How amazing to see the Lord, through His word, show direct links between the prophesy of the prophets to Salvation and the ‘Glories’ that would come as a result of the work of the Messiah.  I am encouraged today by a treasured passage in the bible that seeks to enumerate the blessings we have in a hope provided solely by Jesus and only received through faith in Him.  That hope is so filling and explains Peter’s foundation for yesterday’s QT verses.  Love this so much!
