God wants us to live a life that would bring glory and honour to the son who saved us. God wants us to live a life that would be in keeping with who Christ is. Peter’s letter goes on to encourage us to see Christ as the example for Christian living. New Testament worship is not in itself simply singing praise, but listening well, obedience, acting well, serving well, living well. Every aspect of our lives should resound with praise to God. When suffering comes our way, we need to remember our privileges as Christians
- We have sins forgive in Christ.
- We have an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.. in Christ.
People talk about every cloud having a silver lining but we talk about the fact that the future glory far outweighs any suffering or disappointment we have now. Our privilege must result in praise and worship.
