It is Tuesday, in case you’ve lost track of what day it is!
My suggested Bible reading today from 1 Peter is, Chapter 1 verse 13 through to Chapter 2 verse 3.
Lots of instructions to his readers from the apostle Peter in this passage to challenge us and make us think. For example,
– Prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled (verse 13).
– But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do (verse 15).
– Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind (Chapter 2 verse 1).
None of this is easy, and we can only begin to do this with the Lord’s help, we can’t do it on our own, and particularly asking God’s Holy Spirit inside us to help us change.
And also we remember and inspired by the fact that we are redeemed, our price is paid for, not through silver and gold (verse 18), but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect (verse 19). The One who made us and loves us, is the One who died for us.
Please pray for those who normally come regularly to Here 4 You and have been unable to do so rcently as it is currently closed.
Until tomorrow, may the Lord bless us all.
