This is the True Grace of God

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Luke Davis

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Today in 1 Peter 5:6-14 we wrap up our series through the first epistle by the Apostle Peter. His aim throughout the letter has been to declare the true grace of God and have the church resolutely stand therein. However, God’s kindness to us may look quite different than we expect. As a good Father, though, He cares for us and is intent upon His children gaining His perspective so we might persevere.

Humble Pastors

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Today we continue our series through 1 Peter. Peter’s letter is theologically weighty, yet simultaneously down-to-earth, and is filled fresh encouragements to wholehearted faithfulness while living in exile. In 1 Peter 5:1-5, Peter nears the end of his letter and directs his attention to the elders of the local churches to whom he writes. Jesus’ local churches will only be as healthy as its leaders. So, he gives six emphatic exhortations that are just as relevant today as when they were first written.

Living as an End-of-the-Age People

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

1 Peter is an ancient letter written by the Apostle Peter, the beloved disciple of Jesus, between A.D. 62-63 from Rome, to churches spread throughout Asia Minor (modern day Turkey). His aim was to encourage them—and us—to stand firm (1 Pet. 5:12) amidst trials, persecution, and heartache in a world that is not our true home. Today, in 4:7-11, Peter turns his attention to how we should relate to one another as an end-of-the-age people.
