Call to Arms – 1 Peter 4:1-2

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

1 Peter 4:1
Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. 2 As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.

Peter tells us to arm ourselves here. Have you ever pondered that before? Have you ever thought about how he tells us to arm ourselves? To do so with the attitude of suffering in our body. Are you prepared to suffer in your body for the cause of Messiah? This is to be our attitude everyday. One who maintains this attitude will find it much easier to overcome the evil desires of this world. Why? Because they are focused on the real battle at hand.

If one is focused on suffering for the cause of Messiah, do you really think they are going to entertain thoughts that compromise their stand in Messiah? Where do you stand today? Are you armed for battle?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
