1 Peter 2:21
There are numerous reasons why we suffer. Some suffering is an immediate aftereffect of our own transgression. A few sins happen because of our own foolishness. A few sins are the consequence of living in a fallen world. Peter is expounding on the suffering that is a result of our good works. Christ never trespassed, yet He endured suffering with the goal that we could be liberated. At the point when we follow Christ's model and live for other people, we also may suffer. Our objective ought to be to confront suffering with tolerance, tranquility, and certainty that God is in charge of all things to come.
We should be prepared to make a COMMITMENT. Following Christ is not always CONVENIENT. We may need to get out of our COMFORT zone. We need to pick up our CROSS.
Some questions that we may need to ask ourselves:
Who is to follow?
What does it cost?
When are we to follow?
Where are we to follow?
Why are we to follow?
How are we to follow?
What keeps us from giving all to Christ?
