Peter, A Breath of Fresh Air
Can we get to the bottom line of our “show and tell” behaviors and attitudes, living a life pleasing to God? Peter helps…
1 Peter 2, The Message
11-12 Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.
13-17 Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order. It is God’s will that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you’re a danger to society. Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.
Dear Heavenly Father, May we meditate on this all day long and act upon Your Word with Your Holy Spirit guiding us.
in Jesus Name, Amen
