Daily Fountain Devotional 7 May 2022 MESSAGE
Read verse 15 of our text in different translations to get a better understanding of what it means to “sanctify the Lord in your hearts.” In this context, it could mean to praise or worship or honour the Lord or give him a prime place in our hearts. Serving God in this way obviously means living a life of righteousness. This is often evident through good works and good conduct.
But such righteous living may bring suffering, threats, and the like from powers that be. Should this happen, verses 14 and 17 show that it is better to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. Christ also suffered to save us, and he bore it gladly (v.18). Having won the victory, He received a name that is above every other name, and all authorities in heaven and on earth and everywhere else are under Him (v.22; Phil. 2:9-11).
If we suffer for His sake, we should also reign with Him (2 Tim. 2:11-12).As we sanctify the Lord in our hearts, people may raise several questions about our righteous lifestyles and hope in Christ (v.15). We should respond to such questions calmly and without any shame (Rom. 1:16). Like Paul during his defence before King Agrippa, we could even use such opportunities for evangelism (Acts 26:28-29).
PRAYER: Lord, I present myself afresh to you, as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable (Rom. 12: 1-2).
