NOW: Prepare for Action

As a community, we’re setting out on a new journey of lasting change: We’re studying 1 Peter, a letter written to new Christian converts around 50 years after Jesus, which challenges the new Christians to live counter-culturally as Jesus did–to follow Jesus in departing from our old patterns of sin into new patterns of eternal kingdom building. After the letter’s prologue, or introductory section, the writer says, “Prepare your minds for action…”

This message is merely an introduction to that challenge, to prepare. In the next several weeks, we will discuss this letter in groups in hopes of departing from our old lives into new lives of transformational kingdom building. Ultimately, we hope to begin to experience the some of the “indescribable joy” of God’s eternal kingdom here and NOW. 

Message from Sunday, April 27, 2014.
