Proclaim the Excellencies of Christ

Church Family,

1 Peter 2:11Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.

We are merely passing through here on Earth. Our real home is in Heaven. How does that change things? Well, Satan presents our battles as being against the flesh. Our battles often make us think of how to change the now instead of how to live for eternity. 

Right now if you are believer, your soul is having a war waged against. Which will you find to be more excellent, the world we live in or the one to come? 

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Jesus is the perfect example of one who showed others that the pleasures of this world dont compare to the pleasures of living for God. In fact, Jesus is the perfect example of one who shows that the suffering the we endure is nothing compared to joy of living for God. 

1 Peter 2:20-25 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 21For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. 22He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. 23When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. 24He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Love, Serve, Go
