February 23, 1 Peter 4:12-19 You're probably just a twit

Did the title pique your interest?  It was supposed to. This section speaks of Christians suffering for Christ. When Peter was writing this, persecution of Christians was fairly widespread, not so much in the western world today, though it still certainly exists in many places. I've known some people who say they suffer for Christ, knew a woman who went so far as to compare herself to Job. It's hard to look at someone who is healthy, well fed, driving a car less than 5 years old, has a full time job and yet she thinks she's like Job. The simple fact is that most of the so called sufferings, which for most people are just inconveniences, are because we did something stupid, hence you suffer because you're a twit. Whereas there are a lot of people in Middle Eastern and Far Eastern areas who do genuinely suffer for Christ. When you think about how bad your day is, consider the men and women who've lost everything simply because they believe in Christ, then pray for those nations.
