Good Morning! “So then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin.” 1 Peter 4:1 NLT
When you accepted Christ as your personal savior, you decided to turn away from the old sinful life you lived and began to live a Christ-like life – in your behavior, choices you make, speech and heart toward others.
Now I understand we are all a work in progress, but don’t let that be a crutch to excuse behavior you know is not pleasing to the Lord. So armor up with the strength and power of the Lord to stand up in the midst of trials. Keep pressing through the difficult situations and trust the Lord to give you wisdom and courage to endure. His suffering was not in vain, nor is yours. Allow the Lord to continue his work in you – transforming you into his masterpiece.
Keep seeking, keep trusting, keep praying!
