Key Text: 1 Peter 1:1-25
This week begins our journey through the timeless message of Peter's first letter. As we consider what it means to live out our faith in a fast changing world that grows evermore hostile toward followers of Jesus, what does it mean to live lives set apart for Christ?
Often, our attempt to answer this question begins with a list of things I must do, or more often, not do. But that isn't where Peter begins. Before we think about actions, Peter wants to reorient our minds. Before considering what we should do, we need to consider how we should think.
1 Peter 1:13 (CSB) — Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be sober-minded and set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
