1 Peter: Suffering Precedes Glory (part eight)

Our God specializes in life change. He delights in changing us from the way we were to the way He wants us to be. But that's not enough for Him. After He's begun to change us, He wants to use us as agents of change in others' lives. We're doing what we were designed to do when we are being used by God to serve others. And nothing in this life can bring us the same measure of joy. But that's still not enough for God. While He's using us to change others, He's continuing to fashion us through the experience. God rarely uses an instrument without changing it in the process. And of course, God receives all of the glory for engineering and executing the marvelous plan.
