Wednesday reminders to pray for our prodigals and revival come around very quickly. Thanks for participating.
Prayer and godly behavior go hand in hand.
The apostle Peter gives us five spiritual qualities that should mark every believer: “Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters. Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude” (1 Pet. 3:8).
The Christians who first heard this message were scattered throughout the provinces of Asia Minor. They were being persecuted for their faith. They knew hardship. They experienced extreme loss. The natural tendency in this type of situation is to react with anger, revenge, arguments, and an attitude marked by self-preservation and self-focus. Peter gives an alternative.
