This letter is from Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ. I am writing to God's chosen people who are living as foreigners in the provinces of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and His Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed Him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. May God give you more and more grace and peace. (NLT)
This is a passage that nails the relationship between the trinitarian Godhead and the people of God. We are chosen by God, the Father, cleansed by the sacrifice of God, the Son, and transformed by the work of the God, the Spirit. It is a complete work, perfect in all aspects, a structure that glorifies the LORD, God, the Almighty.
