Stand Firm: Engaging the Culture Without Being Washed Away By It
Topic: Truth Passage: 1 Peter 2:9–2:12
As we near the election we're challenged as believers to stand true to God's purposes while also engaging our culture. This week Ryan Johnston teaches from 1 Peter chapter 2 in which Paul exhorts persecuted Christians to be steadfast in their resolve to live Christ-like lives while not isolating themselves from their culture. We have the same opportunity - to never forget who we are as citizens of God's holy nation, saved by grace throught the death and resurrection of his son Jesus Christ. God chose you and as a believer you're part of an eternal kingdom that will rule forever. With that truth we can be confident that we can tell others of salvation through Christ and that we're made for God's glory and his purposes.
