Submit yourself to God and His ways.
Your opinions, your excuses, your frustrations, your perspectives, your priorities... all submitted and surrendered to Him.
Do all you can to let Him reign in your heart, mind, body and soul so that any suffering you do experience may be done for good and with a clean conscience.
It's God's work in me but it requires cooperation from me. Cooperation with His Word and His Spirit in me.
Be proactive to let His Word and His Spirit IN so that it will be possible to OBEY.
Purpose to DO the action words:
LIVE... in harmony with one another
LOVE... as brothers
REPAY... evil and insult with blessing
KEEP... your tongue from evil... your lips from deceitful speech
TURN...from evil and do good
Be proactive...be strategic...be intentional...
