Obedience…Our Way of Life

Re: Verse reading–1 Peter 2:11-3:9 (Day Four)
Does the way we live our lives daily make a difference?  Absolutely!  If we are a believer, we are to follow the example of Christ.  In every experience…in every relationship…in every response of our life, we are to live to righteousness.  To those in authority over us, we are to submit; when we are reviled, we do not revile in return; if we are treated harshly, we are to endure it with patience.  When we live out the Gospel in our lives, others may glorify God in the day of visitation.  We are blessed when we live our lives in obedience to God, regardless of the circumstances or situations around us.  We are called to follow Christ’s example no matter what…in this, we find favor with God.  (Obedience is better than sacrifice!)  Favor with God is a good thing.  3:8 says, “To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit;…that you may inherit a blessing.”
