For some reason, and I don't know what that reason is, my sermons will not play sound on phones. If you play it on your computer it will work.
I'm working to fix the problem, but it might be awhile. Until then you'll just have to watch it on a regular computer.

Devotion: 1 Peter 2:19-25English Standard Version (ESV)
The point that Peter is making here is that the reason you suffer even for doing good is to point to Christ, and the reason God allows you to suffer because of your sin is to point to Christ. In other words, all suffering whether deserved or not, points you and others to Christ who suffered everything for you.
I can tell you from experience that this is completely true. Suffering for doing good has strengthened my faith and trust in Christ. And suffering for my sin has caused me to repent and turn from that sin to Christ. Both of these are good things that God produces in me. The saying from Scripture is true. God work all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
You can deny Christ and wallow in your sins and self pity. You can also deny Christ on the other side and cry, wail, and moan against every injustice against you, because you don't deserve to suffer. Neither one of these will do you any good. The best thing you can do is rejoice in your suffering, because it produces perseverance, character, and hope which doesn't disappoint you. Besides all this, you know that your suffering here on earth is only temporary and cannot be compared to separation from God.
Rejoice today! Rejoice every day despite your circumstances, because God loves you, cares for you, and is working everything out for your good so that you can be with Him forever in paradise!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for allowing me to suffer temporarily here on earth so you can keep me from eternal suffering apart from you. Amen.
