Daily Digest: The Perfect Example


We may suffer for many reasons. Some suffering is the direct result of our own sin, some happens because of our foolishness, and some is the result of living in a fallen world. Peter is writing about suffering that comes as a result of doing good. Christ never sinned, and yet he suffered so that we could be set free. When we follow Christ’s example and live for others, we too may suffer. Our goal should be to face suffering as he did-with patience, calmness, and confidence that God is in control of the future.

For even to this were you called [it is inseparable from your vocation]. For Christ also suffered for you, leaving you [His personal] example, so that you should follow in His footsteps. He was guilty of no sin, neither was deceit (guile) ever found on His lips. [Isa. 53:9.]

Prayer
Father I thank you for today. May your Holy Spirit be my guide as I desire to walk just like you. Save me from muself. Help me to quickly repent if I should stumble. Teach me how to live a life free of sin, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
