Give Me the Strength

DAILY VERSE

Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.

1 Peter 4:1–2

DEVOTION

Lord, I struggle each day to hold fast to your example. Give me not only the desire, but the guidance to follow you in a manner that glorifies you, to live a life absent of the chains that shackle each of us to our sinful nature and to pick up my cross afresh each day.
