Think Like Christ

Read the Bible in a year by reading First Peter 4 today.
Peter encouraged us, saying,
Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin (1Peter 4:1).
Do you not hate it when you sin? The way to overcome sin in your life is to arm yourself with the same mind as Christ. His life ended because of sin and we need to be ready to go that far. Look at the imagery that Peter used. He said, “Arm yourselves.” This is a battle. It is war. Therefore, you had better put on your weapon and be ready to use it. Engage in battle so that you are willing to lose your life, fighting against sin. What is the weapon with which we must arm ourselves? It is the mind of Christ.
Literally go through this day thinking just like Jesus would. See where it takes you.
