Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional 6 May 2022 TOPIC: Incorruptible Beauty
TEXT: 1 Peter 2:11 – 25(NKJV)
Daily Fountain Devotional 6 May 2022 MESSAGE
Today’s reading opens with an admonition to the Christian wife to maintain an inner beauty that never fades away. While it does not condemn the wearing of good clothes and other external adornments, it is more profitable for the Christian woman to pay greater attention to the development of good character as all “holy women” have done.
They should obey their own husbands and be submissive to them. In this way, even unbelieving husbands could be drawn to Christ through the good conduct of their wives. We should avoid being like whitewashed tombs that look beautiful on the outside but are filled with impurities on the inside (Matt. 23:27).
In verse 7, we see that the incorruptible beauty of the husband should be evident through his cordial relationship with his wife. He should show understanding to his wife in all areas, especially in her weaknesses! Verse 9 reinforces the example of Christ in 1 Peter 2:23 that we should not repay evil for evil! In what practical ways can we have compassion for one another and even bless those who revile us? (vv. 8 – 9).
PRAYER: Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me, All His wondrous compassion and purity, O that Spirit divine, All my nature refine, Till the beauty of Jesus be seen in me.
