Living Out Good

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: 1 Peter 4:1-11 (NLT)

Life as we've known it changes once we make the decision to receive Christ as our Savior. We no longer strive to satisfy our human wants and desires; instead, we focus on doing the will of God and being a living example of doing good.

"You won't spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God." (1 Peter 4:2, NLT)

Peter provides us with some instruction on this good and godly living in verses 7-11, where he instructs us to be earnest and diligent about praying, love each other greatly, extend hospitality and serve one another with the spiritual gifts God has given us.

Would you describe yourself as being "anxious to do the will of God"? How you have lived out and demonstrated Peter's instructions on godly living in verses 7-11 in the past two weeks--praying earnestly, loving others, extending hospitality, or using one or more of your spiritually gifts? Be specific. Tami

Tami,

The Lord used this passage to speak to my heart!
Am I anxious to do the will of God? I would hope so,but what am I doing about it? I have prayed,but more intentional... I have much room to improve.

Thank You,Lord for your convicting work in my heart.
May I be more loving,and being what you want me to be...more like You, Jesus!

Tami, thanks for being a faithful blogger for Jesus!

I fall short I have sure failed the Lord.
Lord forgive me and I am need of Your help to be more like you in serving You,praying,loving being more hospitable,and using the gift that you have given me.I love You,Lord and may I show my love towards You by obeying Your Word.
