As you think about the amazing good news that God loves sinners and has made a way for them to be right with Him through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, remember that this message is meant for all people. Praise God for the Gospel and ask Him to use you for the nations.
If you know Christ, trusting Him as your Lord and Savior, then you are not separated from Him, but you are a dearly loved son or daughter. Today, then, call out to Him with confidence…
 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”  So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
(Galatians 4:6-7 ESV)
I love how 1 Peter draws out our hearts and shows us what Christ was up to in sufferings. We read: “ He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth.  When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly.  He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.  For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”(1 Peter 2:22-25 ESV)
Today, you may be going through suffering yourself. Look to Jesus. And find comfort in your suffering Savior.
Been thinking about some great truth today from Psalm 130:3-4 —
 If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
If God marked iniquities, not one of us could stand before Him. We would all have a guilty verdict upon us. But, with Him there is forgiveness and, as a result, we stand in awe of Him. Praise Him today, for the glorious Gospel realities of forgiveness that are yours in Jesus Christ.
