Read 1 Peter 4:1-19

Think like Jesus – “Arm yourselves with the same way of thinking”

Listen for echoes of Jesus’ prayers when he faced his own suffering

  • “Thy will be done.”
  • “Father forgive them”
  • “Into your hands I commit my spirit”

Love like Jesus

  • By forgiving
  • By showing hospitality
  • By serving

Share in his sufferings

  • If you are insulted for the name of Christ
  • If you suffer as a Christian don’t be ashamed
  • Glorify God in that name

“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46)
