Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. – 1 Peter 4:1-2
Christ suffered horribly for all of us! The torture techniques used to batter and pull flesh from his body prior to the suffering the cross would bring, were unimaginable. You and I must be just as willing to endure trials and suffering for Christ just as he did for us. We have to be willing to be a living sacrifice, because there are many who still don’t know him, and if you haven’t noticed lately, attacks on Christians are on the rise. Stand with Christ, for Christ, and change the world!
