This week was a definite stretch in completing week/lesson 3 - between a crazy life with home schooling, part-time work schedules, headaches/migraine, and having to cook dinner (really!). Even so, God met me where I am... living in organized chaos and questioning to whom I belong.
1 Peter 2.9 focused me on my identity in Christ:
I am part of a chosen people.
I am part of a royal priesthood.
I am part of a holy nation.
I belong to God.
Pretty simple... straightforward. Now, if only I believed (and felt this) on a daily basis. Sue Edwards has challenged us to to find out why we resist these simple truths and to overcome our unhealthy thinking that hinders our spiritual growth.
If you are following along in 1 Peter, what is God revealing to you? How are you applying His word to your life?
I am completing a complimentary copy of 1 Peter: Finding Encouragement in Troubling Times for my weekly review.
