1 Peter 1:3-6 (V.3): We are chosen, by the Father, who gives us the new birth. We are set apart by the Spirit, who gave the Word and enables God’s servants to declare it (vv. 10–12), and gives sinners the faith to believe the promise (v. 22). We have been purchased by the blood of God’s Son (vv. 18–21), who died for us, rose again, and is coming for us to give us our inheritance (vv. 3–4, 13).
