The Struggle Is Real: Day 9

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

Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
1 Peter 2:21‭-‬25 KJV

This one is pretty self explanatory.

Still it’s a struggle following Christ’s example.

I can’t tell you how many times a day I mess up. But the standard is there, so I will continue pressing forward…trying to be more Christ like.

  1. It begs the question, ” Why an example for us that we can’t follow?” Same answer for when God says, “Be holy as I am holy.” There are a lot of reasons God shows us how perfect He is.

    1. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He told us to be holy because He is and then we are told to follow Jesus’ example, knowing full well we can try but never attain it. For the closer we get to God the more we realize our sin. That is a work in progress til Christ returns 🙂
