God is glorified in us when we love like Jesus does…deeply and without expectation.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
1 Peter 4: 8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.
Read - 1 Peter 4-5
Great counsel from God’s word in chapter 4 where we learn that sometimes we simply suffer for being sinful while in other times we can suffer for being righteous. It is righteous suffering that honors God and grows us to be like Jesus. We shouldn’t seek it out but when and if it comes to us we can expect God to empower us to endure!
Lord, I will keep my eyes fixed on You even when times are tough.
Give all of your worries and cares to God because He cares about you. This is a beautiful truth but one that is hard to believe unless you are allowing God to work in your mind and heart to morph your mindset and motivation. It is a freeing thing to cast cares upon God because our load gets lighter and our disposition gets brighter!
