Do you have an area of your life you need victory over?
In 1 Peter 4 with the theme of suffering for what is good as our background we find another option. Sever with sin and start serving… serve the body of Christ for the glory of God. We can do this because Christ is the Original OG and paid the price for our sins, sacrificed and suffered for us. “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies — in order that in everything God may be glorified thought Jesus Christ” — 1 Peter 4
Do you need victory over sin in your life? Serve others and trust that Christ paid the price, suffered and sacrificed for that sin.
