1 Peter 2:21. Jesus as an example!

Jesus crown of thorns 2018

Good morning everyone!

As you are growing closer to GOD and HIS ways, there will always be people who do not have or want our dear beloved JESUS as savior. It is as though they are walking in a state of confusion and being lost in the darkness. 

There seems to be some sort of drama that they just step right into for not knowing what they are doing. So it is interesting to me when I hear a person say that they believe in GOD and attend church and are not really connecting with GOD in a faithful way. Meaning the lifestyle they choose to live is causing a spiritual warfare within their very soul. Going back and forth in all that they do from right to wrong. Some may have sex outside of marriage and feel it is okay. To lie on others, steal or do anything that is in spite. Gossip and say mean things to people using the excuse of saying they are trying to help. All of these things cause the doer no peace or joy.

This is not right to do to one another. We have to talk to each other with a peaceful compassionate JESUS heart as how we would want people to talk to us. There is no reason to speak rude to people who were not rude to you.

1 Peter 2:21

“For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:” 

King James Version (KJV)

Many people will assume it is okay to talk to people sharp or disrespectful because they are a supervisor in a company. This may give them a feeling of importance when they have never felt it. Leaving them to feel insecure and resentful of how things and life are for them.

At work taking out what ever it is that is on their mind on the people they are supervising. Then they are surprised when people get mad at them because of it. This is never good, be it at work you do this , at home or school. We do not treat others hatefully with lack of respect and compassion.

Provoking others to anger is sinful and yes Christians get angry was well. There are those who seek answers about GOD, JESUS watch us every single day. Those who watch maybe seeking answers about getting into heaven will see just how we people who call themselves Christians react to each other. They will use any chance to say…”see I told you they were like that! Why should I try to be good when they act like us?”

Those who seek answers do not have a relationship with GOD and HIS beloved son Jesus. And then there are those who will say and do anything to make a person who is good look bad even if they will be the ones who fall into the ditch they dug for you themselves. These are the one who are running away willfully from GOD.

Now for them not knowing anything about salvation and the return of JESUS for all who do love HIM, they could be left behind. For those of us who are saved, we will go with JESUS in the 2nd coming with HIM. Those with a wicked heart, maybe in the midst of trying to do something bad to us. They will be watching us planning to do evil and see us disappear right before them.

So whenever you can with discernment, we need to talk to people about the LORD GOD. Yes we can pray for them to change and see the light of the LORD GOD and HIS son JESUS….but plant the seed and let GOD do the rest. Even with those who are our enemies.

Matthew 7:21 – 7:23M

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

I have had a recent conversation with someone regarding how they speak to people. It is something that has to be done with some people as to rebuke or reprimand them on the treatment that they decide to give to others. When do this with a JESUS heart….and with no hate in your heart there should be no hard feelings. The person that you are concerned about should take into effect of what the consequences of not having a peaceful heart.

You can have a person think.

You can have a person listen.

We need unity with all people, with all Christians too. You can not make a person stop from loving the sin they are in. So pray for these people, they do not really know what they are doing. Let GOD take over from here.

1 Peter 1:14 – 1:16

14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:

15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
