Weird

1 Peter 1:13-25 We don’t like standing out from the crowds. We want everyone to like us. Many of us never move past that middle-school mindset of trying to fit in. We still want to sit at the cool table. But Peter teaches us that the weird table is so much better.

Homesick

1 Peter 1:1-12 This week we launch into our multi-week study of 1 Peter. And what we see is that Peter doesn’t start off this letter with what the readers can do to fix their situation. He gives them a reminder of what Jesus has done for them, and a picture of hope for the future, for something beautiful. Because he knows that’s what’s going to transform them. That’s what’s going to sustain them.
