A Verse for Meditation

You have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God. 1 Peter 1:23

  • Why does Peter call the word of God “living” and “abiding?” (Hint – See Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1) What other traits (in addition to living and abiding) do you recognize in the word of God?
  • When did Jesus teach Peter about being born again? (Hint – see John 3. Who would have been present besides Jesus and Nicodemus in this story?)
  • How did Paul explain the same idea? See 1 Corinthians 15:33-38
  • Secular thinkers have a real problem with the resurrection. How would you explain resurrection and eternal life to a secular thinker?
