Love God, Trust God

God gave Peter 3000 souls at Pentecost. (Acts 2:41) To Stephen, 3000 stones. (Acts 7:59) The choice is not ours but His. (Luke 11:2)

Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. (Matthew 11:26, NIV)

The short-cut to growing in Christ is suffering. (Romans 8:17)

So, since Christ suffered in the flesh for us, for you, arm yourselves with the same thought and purpose [patiently to suffer rather than fail to please God]. For whoever has suffered in the flesh [having the mind of Christ] is done with [intentional] sin [has stopped pleasing himself and the world, and pleases God], (1 Peter 4:1, AMP)

Do you love God? Then trust God.(John 14:15)

Prayer- Lord, please be the Superstar in our lives, especially in the midst of our suffering. That’s all that matters. For Christ. Amen (from a quote by author Michael Bull Roberts)
