Beyond the Gospels: Peter

Today’s Scripture: 1 Peter 4:1-11
(Click on the link to read today’s verses.)

From a human point of view Jesus’ death was a terrible injustice. But from God’s perspective it was in accordance with His plan. Christ, our example, chose God’s will voluntarily and accepted suffering.

We all will have to give an account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. Shall one submit to the will of God then reject living a godly life? No. We are to live godly, according to God’s will, led by the Spirit. By faith we believe that there will ultimately be good results.

Jesus could have escaped the cross. But by His act of submission to God’s will, He brought a blessing. We can be guided to do the right thing by God’s will also. For we can be confident that His will is the pathway to spiritual blessings in our lives as well. For when we serve with our spiritual gifts, we can do so with the strength God provides. Give Him the praise and glory.

Thought for today: By faith we can be confident that God will lead us by His ever present Spirit.

God, help us to seek your will in our daily living… Amen.
