Scripture: 1 Peter 3:1-12, 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
In Step 5 we protect our blamelessness by choosing to cast down imaginations and actively, intentionally rejecting every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge, wisdom and Word of God. When it comes to blamelessness, because we have an accuser of the brethren, we have to take action and stand against every thought and reminder of what God has already forgotten! Doers of the Word act on the Word. 1 Peter 3:1-10 shows us the importance of the issue of honor. It clearly says in this passage, “…not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling. But on the contrary blessing, knowing that you were called to this, that you may inherit a blessing. For, ‘He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; Let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayer; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” So the issue of having a clear conscience, covering each other and showing distinctive honor is a call that allows us to develop the fear of God and allows us to enter a mature path toward God’s purpose in our midst and brings us into the fullness that God has ordained for us. Surely we can sow the seed that grow these promises!
