Beyond the Gospels: Peter

Today’s Reading: 1 Peter 4:12-19
[Read online by clicking the reference above or open up your Bible to read.]

Scripture plainly teaches that we are to participate in the sufferings of Christ. Yet, suffering for being a Christian is not something we speak of much in America. Peter elaborates on God’s grace in suffering for His name. We should expect trials and rejoice in them for He is with us.
Peter says those who suffer because of His name are blessed, but the blessing might not be evident until Jesus returns. For Christians to accept God’s will without asking Why? in the midst of suffering calls for a deep trust and a firm faith.
How will you apply trust to your own life as you daily surrender to God and obey His Word?

Thought for today: Rejoice! Because the Spirit of God’s glory rests upon His chosen ones.

God, may Your will be done as we entrust our souls to You, our faithful Creator.
