"Whoever speaks is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God;
whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies;
so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ,
to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever.
1 Peter 4:11
I have a confession to make. I have been struggling with a bad attitude quite a bit this past week. A bad attitude that starts inside of me but ends up coming out in the ways that I interact with others. This is not good! That is not the person that I want to be and more importantly it is not how God wants me to be.
On Wednesday we were studying 1 Peter 4 in class at church and when I read this verse I realized that this is one that I really need to have become a part of me. I want to speak only what God wants me to say and words that He would say. I want to serve willingly and lovingly and realize that I can only do that because God gives me the strength. I really want to bring glory to God!
I am working on memorizing this verse but I want to do a lot more than getting it in my head, I want it to go into my heart and be a part of me!
