Armed With the Same Attitude

“Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do—living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They think it strange that you do not plunge with them into the same flood of dissipation, and they heap abuse on you. But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.”  1 Peter 4:1-5 Are you armed with the same attitude? Do you push down your base desires to live for the glory of God, to offer your body as a living sacrifice to God? In a culture that screams at us to indulge, we who are followers of Jesus, must arm ourselves with a different attitude. There is a cost to following Jesus. David said, “I will not offer anything that costs me nothing.”
