Activate Sim

Insert Sim in device.
Change access point
Modify settings.
Ensure carrier selected.
Switch data roaming “on”.
Go to website.
Enter code
… and personal details.
Test settings.
Your Sim is activated.
You are now connected.
But life
is not that straight forward.
The number is sometimes smudged
on its plastic case
and the code hard to enter.
Testing the settings,
and activating
and achieving high data rates
and clear reception is not always 
that easy,
or clear.
But Lord,
your “helpline”
is always available!

Living for the Will of God

Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. 2As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. 1 Peter 4:2&3

In Peter’s first letter, chapter 4, there is an amazing challenge. Peter challenges the Christian to live for the will of God. His reason, because Christ has suffered on our behalf.

In our everyday lives there are often clashes of wills. We don’t want to submit to to others – it goes against the grain. It goes against our stubborn human natures. We see it in two year olds, in teenagers and in ourselves. But here Peter says, submit you will to God. Live for God. It is the sign that you have understood and grasped for yourself the enormity of Christ’s sacrifice for you.

So our challenge today and tomorrow and everyday after that is to reveal that Christ is Lord of all. Of ALL! Nothing omitted.
