Friday – 1 Peter 3:8, 15
We close out our week of fellowship (“sharing together”) by meditating on Peter’s words. He lists 5 virtues for us to put into practice when living in community with others:
* Be like-minded
* Be sympathetic
* Love one another
* Be compassionate
* Be humble
This is an exceptional list to apply each day in order to see how our lives measure up to the standards set by God’s Word. If each member of our community will begin to put these into practice, unity would be maintained and fellowship would be restored. However, the important part of all of this is that the heart is right. In 3:15, Peter lays out the truth of why we do what we do when he says, “but in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.” The drive behind our actions should always be worship. We serve our Lord out of an intense reverence for who he is and what he has done for us. That is why we strive to make our community function the very best it can.
