Germane (1 Peter 5:6-11)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “germane.” The people in the church needed to understand that they were called to eternal glory with God. Because of this, they also needed to endure hardships in light of the grace that God had bestowed upon them through the Son. It seems that no matter what time in history we look at, people are always dealing with stuff that piles up on their plates, causing them to lose sight of God's call.

"And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”
~1 Peter 5:10

My question is: have you taken a deep enough look at the Scriptures to understand the suffering that Christ endured for you? I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in the hardships that we are facing that we fail to remember that Jesus paid a much bigger price for you and me. However, even though we mess up a bunch, Jesus still promises to come back and restore us. You would think that following him and doing his will should be a simple, or germane, fact of life. But you and I must continually look inward and remember that Jesus is called us to suffer only a little while before we are one day in glory with him.

Praying for you,
