A Countercultural Community

Peter’s letter is theologically weighty, yet simultaneously down-to-earth, and is filled fresh encouragements to wholehearted faithfulness while living in exile. Today, in 1 Peter 3:8-17, we are going to look at three ways that the Gospel shapes us as countercultural community, even in the midst of evil and unjust suffering.

Godly Wives

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. We’ve considered politics (2:13-17), unjust suffering (2:18-25), singleness (3:1-7) and, today, godly wives (3:1-6).

The Living Cornerstone

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

1 Peter: Living in Exile

He is risen! (And happy seventh birthday, DCC!) On Good Friday we gathered to remember Jesus’ death on the cross for the forgiveness of sin. Today, on Easter, we gather to rejoice in Jesus’ climactic victory over the grave through his resurrection. In 1 Peter 2:4-8, Peter reveals that Jesus is the living cornerstone of reality. By faith in him, we become living stones in his living temple that exists to display his worth, and announce his victory, to the neighborhoods of our city and the nations of the world.
