Executing an Unshakable Strategy



 

1 Peter 3:8-16


To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.


For, “The one who desires life, to love and see good days, must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. “He must turn away from evil and do good; He must seek peace and pursue it. “For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, And His ears attend to their prayer, But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”


Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.


How to respond to injustice:


1) Choose a definitive Lord, King, Boss.

2) Have solid reasons why you respond with so much hope in bad circumstances.

3) Speak and act with gentleness and reverence.

4) Make sure your conscience is clean being in line with God’s word.

a) Bring your actions and attitudes into the light.

b) Let the blood of Jesus wash you and your conscience clean.

c) Die to the old self.

d) Embrace Jesus and listen to your clean conscience.
