Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.
Context: Peter writes: “Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God…”
1 Peter 4:19 “Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.”
Observations: When we suffer it is easy to get self-focused. Paul challenges us to entrust ourselves to God (God-focused) and do good.
Application: “Lord, keep me from feeling sorry for myself and focusing on my trials. Give me the strength to serve others as I focus on You.”
Are you doing good while suffering?
