Peter was a businessman, a fisherman
He became a disciple of Jesus through the witness of his brother
He was given the name Peter by Jesus
How Can I Engage even when I do not feel like it?
- Prepare your minds for action – v. 13
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
- Live a life of obedience – v. 14
- Live a Holy life – v. 15
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
I Peter 2:9
God is calling you to Engage:
But perhaps you just do not feel like it.
Let me encourage you to be obedient, He is calling you to Engage –
Will you do it?
