Attitudes and Actions

I’m well into the 4th chapter of 1 Peter and he has just been hammering away at two things: the proper attitude and actions of a Christ follower. Over and over. “This should be your attitude. This should be your conduct.” Rinse. Repeat.

It’s almost like, “Gee whiz, Peter. We get it.”

But, then, Peter brings it all home with 1 Peter 4:7.

“The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers.”

And there it is.

👉 Be self-controlled. (Actions)

👉 Be sober-minded. (Attitude)

👉 For the sake of your prayers!

Our attitudes and actions affect our prayer lives! And that is why Peter spent 4 chapters on it.

I totally get it now, Peter.
