Suffering for Doing Right


As Christians, many of us have suffered for doing what’s right. So why do we panic at a time when things in the world are bad, knowing God will reward us for being obedient?  Now is a time for us all to renew our spirits and minds with Christ. As 1 Peter 3:13-16 says “Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way. Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.”  We have to live a holy life, showing respect and representing God for who died for us all. We can no longer be worried or concerned with what the enemy is doing around us.  Satan has no power or control over our lives if we don’t allow it. Today, worship Christ for your suffering for doing right and that will lead to an eternal life with him.
