Foreigners in the Land

a series on 1 Peter

Just a few decades after Jesus’ death, Peter found himself “pastoring” young Christians scattered throughout Asia.

Those early Christians found themselves in a tough situation.  Their faith had touched their hearts and impacted their lives, causing them to form little churches all over the place.  However, they were struggling to figure out how to relate to the wider culture that was, at best, ignorant of and, at worst, hostile toward the faith they held dear.

This can feel all too familiar to our current situation as western Christians.

In Peter’s first letter, we find the words and wisdom of God to us.  God reminds us who we are, how we are to live, and what we are to expect as followers of Jesus in a culture that often feels like a strange land.

The Riches of God’s Grace

a study of Ephesians

In Ephesians, Paul tells us of the great reconciliation that has been brought about through the powerful, sovereign, and free working of the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Throughout the centuries it has helped believers affirm their identity in Christ and promoted unity and transformation in the church.

Over the next couple of months we’re going to work through Ephesians verse by verse. Each week we’ll simply pick up where we left off the week before.
