1 Peter Chapter 4 : 1-10 - World English Bible [WEB]

  • World English Bible [WEB]
  • 1 Forasmuch then as Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind; for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin;
  • 2 that you no longer should live the rest of your time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
  • 3 For we have spent enough of our past time doing the desire of the Gentiles, and having walked in lewdness, lusts, drunken binges, orgies, carousings, and abominable idolatries.
  • 4 They think it is strange that you don't run with them into the same excess of riot, blaspheming:
  • 5 who will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
  • 6 For to this end the Good News was preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed as men in the flesh, but live as to God in the spirit.
  • 7 But the end of all things is near. Therefore be of sound mind, self-controlled, and sober in prayer.
  • 8 And above all things be earnest in your love among yourselves, for love covers a multitude of sins.
  • 9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.
  • 10 As each has received a gift, employ it in serving one another, as good managers of the grace of God in its various forms.

  • 1 Forasmuch then as Christ suffered in the flesh, arm ye yourselves also with the same mind; for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
  • 2 that ye no longer should live the rest of your time in flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
  • 3 For the time past may suffice to have wrought the desire of the Gentiles, and to have walked in lasciviousness, lusts, winebibbings, revellings, carousings, and abominable idolatries:
  • 4 wherein they think strange that ye run not with [them] into the same excess of riot, speaking evil of [of]:
  • 5 who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the living and the dead.
  • 6 For unto this end was the gospel preached even to the dead, that they might be judged indeed according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
  • 7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore of sound mind, and be sober unto prayer:
  • 8 above all things being fervent in your love among yourselves; for love covereth a multitude of sins:
  • 9 using hospitality one to another without murmuring:
  • 10 according as each hath received a gift, ministering it among yourselves, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God;

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
