Nibble of Bread : 1 Peter 2:23

July 23, 2012

1 Peter 2:23

He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly.

How backwards do we all have it? Believers and Non-Believers alike? If you are or have been wronged how quick are you to try to prove your case, or to make sure you get what was taken from you? This has been engrained in us by our society, our culture and our way selfish way of living. Think of how quick people are to sue each other. Or how fast we like to complain or place blame on every single thing. In my job people will complain about so many things. They complain mostly about money they feel should be entitled to them. Did Jesus complain that His title of GOD was taken from Him? Yet we complain over pennies and titles…Jesus was God in the flesh. Sent from God the Father to die for our sins. Yet He was legally tortured in the worst way known to man. Mocked the entire time, spit on and punched. Yet said nothing. Lets work on living this way. Live to please God and trust God in ALL things. Live with the peace that He is in control of ALL things. It is not our right to fight and complain for every little thing. It is God’s right.

As I am writing this I am fighting my own flesh that maybe there are times when we need to fight. But don’t you think Jesus as the Messiah. Jesus Christ as God, in all that madness should have stood up and said wait a minute: do you know who I am? But the message He sends us is, He didnt. If we are to fight, We need to fight for things that dishonor God’s Word. We need to fight for righteousness. We need to fight to live a life full of God’s holiness. Those are the things we fight, kick and scream for. Not money. Not titles. Not over feelings or anything that doesnt bring God ALL the Glory!
