I only have a couple things to say about this week's edition of God Is.

First - I just wanted to clarify that I am including verses from my Bible reading that say anything about any of the three persons of God. God the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) or the Holy Spirit. So if you notice that some of the verses only talk about Jesus, or Lord, or Spirit, they are all talking about the same one and only true God. This concept of the Trinity - God, three in one - is hard to wrap our human minds around, but the Bible, God's own words, confirm this truth all throughout. I just had to get that out there - obvious for some, no so obvious for others.

Second - I don't have anything new from 1 Corinthians to share this week. A bunch of kids who were not in my Sunday School class the first week showed up last week so instead of picking up where I left off, I had the kids who were there the first week help me bring the others up to speed about the book (who wrote it, when, where and to whom, historical context, themes, etc). So this edition is shorter than last week's, but still packed with power.

I Peter 3:4 A woman's inner self and her unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit are of great worth in God's sight.

1 Peter 3:12 "For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

1 Peter 3:17 Sometimes it can be God's will for you to suffer for doing good.

1 Peter 3:18 "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit..."

1 Peter 3:19 "...God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built."

1 Peter 3:22 Jesus Christ has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand - with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit."

1 Peter 4:11 To Jesus Christ be the glory and the power for ever and ever.

1 Peter 4:13 Christ's glory will be revealed.

1 Peter 4:14 The Spirit of glory and of god rests on those who are insulted because of the name of Christ.

1 Peter 4:19 It is God's will that some should suffer and that they should also commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

1 John 1:9 If you confess your sins, God is faithful and just to forgive you your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness.

Psalm 13:6 God has been good to you.

1 Peter 5:1 Christ's sufferings were witnessed by Peter.

1 Peter 5:2 God wants his flock to be shepherded under the care of elders who are willing and eager to serve as overseers and be an example to the flock.

1 Peter 5:4 God is the Chief Shepherd who will reward these elders/overseers with a crown of glory that will never fade.

1 Peter 5:6 God's hand is mighty and will lift up the humble in due time.

1 Peter 5:7 God cares for you and wants you to cast all your anxiety on him.

1 Peter 5:10 "And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."

1 Peter 5:12 God's grace is true.

1 Peter 5:14 Christ gives peace to all who are in him.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 "But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one."
