1 Peter 1:13–21
Jump to Presentation Slides

When Peter wrote this letter, oppression and persecution began to sweep from Rome to the edges of the Empire. In last week’s session, Peter described our new life in Christ and our hope, a future to live for. In the meantime, we can experience suffering, even persecution. How do our lives reflect this hope? We are to live in such a way that our faith is beyond reproach and our character honors the One we believe in. This is no time for shoddy thinking or sloppy living, taking liberties with His lavish grace. Learning to think clearly, staying focused on the future, and maintaining our hope in God does not come automatically. The behavior of holy living requires discipline and practice because the world tries to force us into its mold. So, dig in to how Peter tells us to focus our thinking and resulting behavior as sojourners in this alien world.
