You’re A Priest

Grace and Hope

For those of us who are United States citizens, we hold a unique set of privileges both within and outside of the borders of our country. For those of us who are Christians, we carry a spiritual identity which is of infinitely greater value. The Apostle Peter wrote to the Christians of his day calling them foreigners and strangers in the world. As Christians (in the first century as well as today), our first allegiance and our first loyalty is to Christ. How we see ourselves determines so much about the way we live. In short, our identity drives our behavior. In this second week of our 7- week series on 1 Peter, we will be looking at WHO WE REALLY ARE as Christians and what this means for our everyday lives.

From Series: "Grace and Hope"

As Peter writes this letter to the Christians scattered throughout Asia Minor, they are already encountering some measure of persecution – and it appears that even more suffering is on the horizon. This letter is an encouragement to follow Christ’s example and remain faithful no matter what kind of suffering these trials produce. Throughout this short book in the New Testament, Peter urges believers to have hope and to continue trusting the Lord no matter what the circumstance.
