Beyond the Gospels: Peter

Today’s Verses: 1 Peter 3:8-22

(Click on the link to read today’s Scripture.)
Peter would say God uses suffering to purify one’s faith and help Christians experience His presence in their lives. Christ suffered wrongly, but God honored Him and gave Him glory. Christ died to bring Believers into relationship with God. Keep a good conscience toward God in submission to Him. Even if it means suffering for doing good.
Suffering is never easy for Christians, but be assured that God is in control when suffering comes. God loves us and permits suffering for our good. Rather than complain, rejoice when suffering for His sake.
Peter describes the good life (righteousness) as unity, brotherly love, compassion, and humility. Concentrate on doing good; God will take care of the results.

Thought for today: Always be ready to give an account for the hope that is within you.

Lord our Savior, we are blessed that you enable us to be alive in the Spirit. Help us live godly lives… Amen.
