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 1 Peter 2:13-17, Peter describes how we should relate to the world politically, in light of who we are.

The Living Cornerstone

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.

Today, in 1:6-9, Peter helps us to see that we can have a increasingly precious faith — not in spite of various trials — but, a faith that actually becomes more precious, more joyful, because of the trials.
