Ignorant and Empty – 1 Peter 1:14,18

September 13th, 2017 by phall

“Do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance…for you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life” (1 Peter 1:14,18). Peter’s writings are not considered as scholarly as Paul’s, much like Jeremiah is not as compared to Isaiah. Maybe that says something about me since I have always been drawn to 1 Peter. He is elegant in his own blunt way, weaving the gospel in and out of his sentences. The two above verses struck me as pointedly blunt. It made me think of brothers and sisters who gave up their salvation for “perishable things” (1:18). It warns me. Ignorant and empty. That describes a life without Jesus.
