Over the next eight weeks we will look at 1 Peter. Peter wrote this book for people who were facing some very harsh persecution, which many of us have never had to face in our western culture, because we live in relative peace and comfort.
You’re A Privileged Character
Today we are beginning a new series called In Courage. Over the next eight weeks we will look at 1 Peter. Today we discover that as a follower of Jesus we live with an unfair advantage, specifically when it comes to our struggles.
Dare to be Different
Today’s secular culture is increasingly opposed to the values of Christ followers. Today we will look at the call to Dare To Be Different as followers of Jesus, to live lives of holiness.
This week we look at how we can go about changing ourselves from the inside out. In order to become different through and through, we need to allow ourselves to get carried away with our Christianity -- to become fanatics about a few things.
Getting In The Last Word
Peter talks to slaves and challenges them to treat their masters with respect, even in the midst of persecution and suffering. We all suffer, we all go through difficult times in our lives. What Peter has to say is applicable to us.
Living The Good Life
We will discover that Living the Good Life is about a quality of life. Living this life as a Christian takes courage. Peter mentions three things that are fundamental to finding happiness in your day to day existence.
A Holy People, A People of Peace
Join us as we discover God’s call to be a Holy People and a People of Peace in a world that today is anything but peaceful.
A Leader Tough and Tender
Today in 1 Peter 5:1-4 Peter gives three important characteristics of a leader. Join us as we explore what it means to lead with tenderness, depositing more than we withdraw and by being an example.
You're In Good Hands
Peter’s closing reminder to his readers is that You’re in Good Hands. No matter what trials come your way, as followers of Jesus you are in good hands, you are in God’s hands.
