The Kind of Life


During my devotion this week, the Holy Week leading up to Resurrection Sunday, I came across a scripture I had never read before. By no means am I affluent in theology, but I do feel as though I've read quite a bit of the New Testament. I was so moved and humbled by this text, I found it only fitting to share it today, Good Friday. Let us rejoice that we have an incredibly loving Father who set the perfect example.

The Kind of Life He Lived

18-20 You who are servants, be good servants to your masters—not just to good masters, but also to bad ones. What counts is that you put up with it for God’s sake when you’re treated badly for no good reason. There’s no particular virtue in accepting punishment that you well deserve. But if you’re treated badly for good behavior and continue in spite of it to be a good servant, that is what counts with God.

 21-25 This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.

 He never did one thing wrong, 
Not once said anything amiss. 

 They called him every name in the book and he said nothing back. He suffered in silence, content to let God set things right. He used his servant body to carry our sins to the Cross so we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way. His wounds became your healing. You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you’re named and kept for good by the Shepherd of your souls.

1Peter 2:18-25 MSG
