9/18/13 Daily Devotion

1 Peter 4:1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin.

When we consider the punishment Christ endured and His death on the cross, there is no reason not to believe that God’s love for mankind is real. The attitude of Christ during this time in His life is also amazing. He so willingly endured so much and then eventually gave up His life, so we can receive forgiveness. Wow! It seems to be so much for us, so much to have gone through to help such a sinful humanity, but that’s love, the love of God through Christ. As Christians, we are called to emulate Christ in all that we do. Now that seems like an uphill battle, doesn’t it? Of course it is, but it we can still bring it to fruition. As Christians, we will encounter moments that will test our faith and our trust in God, but they don’t have to devour us. Jesus is our example, the example of the attitude we must have within our own lives. Are you ready to be more like Jesus every day?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become more like You with every passing day.
