Obedience. Just that. Nothing else.

1 Peter 2:18 - 22

"You who are servants, be good servants to your masters—not just to good masters, but also to bad ones. What counts is that you put up with it for God’s sake when you’re treated badly for no good reason. There’s no particular virtue in accepting punishment that you well deserve. But if you’re treated badly for good behaviour and continue in spite of it to be a good servant, that is what counts with God.

This is the kind of life you’ve been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived. He suffered everything that came his way so you would know that it could be done, and also know how to do it, step-by-step.

He never did one thing wrong,
Not once said anything amiss."

Approaching Easter - it is Maundy Thursday today - what else is there to say? If Christ suffered so much, who are we - who am I - to argue or complain about anything. He is our hero, our captain, our leader who we follow and obey and put above everything and everyone else.
