Good Friday Thoughts

As I have read 1 Peter no less than thirty times in the last few weeks – I’ve come to a conclusion.

It’s easy to love Jesus.

It’s harder to live for Jesus.

And, yet, the two are inseparable.

Peter says, “You believe in him. You love him. You have joy because of him.”

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Then Peter talks about sorrow and suffering and injustice and grief and trials and how, in the midst of it all, we are to endure and do good.

No. No. No.

How can we possibly do that?

“…Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.” 1 Peter 2:21

Lord, give us the strength to follow your example. To suffer well. To endure graciously. To do good to the end. To one day see your face and be able to say, “I did it just like you showed me.”
