Connecting people with the hope of the Gospel.
Real Hope: Households of Hope (1 Peter 3:1-7)
Christian households are to be outposts of the kingdom of God in the world, shining hope to the world, with marriage as an essential building block. In marriage, husbands and wives are equal in status, different in role, and have the same goal: imitating Jesus through humility toward one another.
Real Hope: Lifestyle of Hope (1 Peter 2:11-25)
Our identity of hope is that we are exiles and sojourners in this world, having been born again to a living hope. But we are also invaders, waging war against the kingdom of darkness on the internal front against the passions of our flesh (by grace resisting them) and the external front against those who oppose us (by grace submitting to authority, silencing fools by doing good to them, serving others, suffering well, and in all things seeking Christ).
Real Hope: Community of Hope (1 Peter 2:4-10)
Our identity of hope: we are chosen by God, children of God, and the church for God. This passage teaches us that God means to dwell with His people and the Church is the spiritual house He is building. We are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession.
Real Hope: Holiness in Hope (1 Peter 1:13-2:3)
We are not only chosen by God as elect exiles. In Christ, we are children of God!
Real Hope: Identity of Hope (1 Peter 1:1-12)
Having been born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we have a new identity of hope. We are no longer citizens of this world, but citizens of Christ's Kingdom - elect exiles.
Gospel of Restoration (John 20:19-23; John 20:24-29; John 21: 1-14; John 21:15-19)
Jesus meets us in our struggle with exactly what we need.
