ARM YOUR SELF
1ST PETER 4:1
1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the
flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in
the flesh hath ceased from sin;
Brothers, please allow me to teach you a lesson on the
mind of Christ Jesus.
We who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior are to try
each and every day to be like him, and to love as he loved. Jesus suffered in
the flesh for you and I. His suffering unto death did free us from sin death.
Brothers, please see here in verse 1 that you and I
have ceased from sin. We are to walk no more as we walked when we were yet
unsaved. We have been delivered from sin because of Jesus' suffering, death,
and resurrection. His suffering in the flesh has freed you and I.
Arm yourself with the same mind of Christ Jesus our
Lord. Not with your fleshly mind, but rather with your spiritual mind. It is
the mind of your spirit which possesses the armor of the mind of Jesus. When we
accept this truth nothing or no one can defeat us.
Please receive Peter's teaching here as we walk
through this life here on earth knowing that we are already victorious. You
only need to know that you are armed with the mind of Christ. Jesus did only
what he saw the Father do, and he only said what he heard the Father say.
Arm yourselves with the mind of Christ.
1st Peter 4:2
2 That we no longer should live the rest of our time on earth in the flesh to the
lusts of men, but to the will of God.
Brothers, we are no longer to live our lives in the
flesh as the lost world lives. But, rather we are to live the rest of our time
here on earth to the will of God.
Please pray each morning as you rise to face your day,
that the Holy Spirit who is your teacher would show you when you step out of
God's will for your life. He will show you all things. All you have to do is
ask, and then receive. Walk in the grace of God my brothers.
