Admit it. There are certain passages of Scripture that are easy to skip over or zoom through. Oh, how tempting it is to skim through the geneologies! And sometimes just as tempting is quickly reading through the introduction and greetings of certain books. I wonder how many golden nuggets in Scripture I have passed over because I forgot, "Every word of God is pure," including the greeting verses.
This morning I took some time dwelling on the introduction to 1 Peter chapter 1. When I slowed down to really dwell on it, how encouraged I was!
"Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ..."
It's obvious who the writer of 1 Peter was. Peter!
