Wherefore having girded up the loins of your mind, being sober, hope perfectly upon the grace that is being brought to you in the revelation of Jesus Christ…

via 1 Peter 1:13 YLT

hey fellow bereans, check this out. you probably heard this verse a dozen times,& it sounded something like this…

…set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed.

that sounds like a future event, right?  but get this… there’s a ‘present passive participle’ in there…

Present passive participles…  refer to an activity which is currently taking place or which repeatedly takes place

so now it sounds like a current event, now, today…  that’s a whole different meaning.   if i’m gonna set my hope on something, & i think it ain’t gonna arrive til some distant future date… that would be a tad discouraging.

but this promise is for today!

don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourselves…

1 Pet 1:13 commands us to “completely hope on the grace now being brought in revelation of Jesus Christ.”

The following is a fuller expanded rendering of the Greek text…

completely hope on the grace being carried along to you, in revelation, concerning Jesus Christ.
