What happens when you choose to live by different priorities, values, and allegiances to those around you? How should you think about and navigate through suffering? And what should the Church’s relationship be with the surrounding culture?
These are questions both the 1st and 21st century Christians wrestle with. And Peter writes his letter with strong encouragement, conviction, and soberness to help us answer these questions.
Stand Firm is a teaching series through 1 Peter, and the title comes straight from the purpose for which Peter wrote to us:
I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it.” — 1 Peter 5:12
