“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.”
1 Peter 1:1-2 NLT
As we live in grace we will gain peace through Christ. We should have in our minds that we have won, that we don’t haft to keep killing ourselves to simply “win” something that has already been conquered through Christ. We should take what Peter is saying to heart and allow our being to be at peace. To truly recognize that we’re victorious and we’re truly cleansed through the blood and sacrifice of Christ. We’re forgiven. once we allow the spirit to sanctify us we will begin to find clarity.
