Jesus is our example.

Series: Behind the Mask | Week 2: Step Over the Offense

Read 1 Peter 2:21-23

1. How have you suffered for doing good?
2. How did Christ leave us an example for suffering well?
3. Where did He ultimately put His trust?

1. Jesus set the perfect example for us in living without bitterness. He faced opposition and suffering His entire life yet chose to live unoffended by any of it. Follow His example now and take your case to God – the only righteous and fair Judge. Take it out of your hands and put it in His.
2. If you find yourself in situations that make you want to retaliate and take revenge, remember Jesus did too! Thank God now for a Savior who was tempted in every way and sympathizes with our weakness.
