A Living Hope – 1 Peter 1:13-25

Wednesday    4/8/20
 
Think of your lifestyle before you became a christian.  How is your lifestyle different now?
 
Since your conversion (becoming a child of God) how has your spiritual life progressed?
(Describe your spiritual journey)
 
What does it mean to be holy?
 
What motivates us to live righteously?  To pursue holiness – to become more like Christ?
 
In light of what is going on today in our world –  the virus (sickness and death), our lives being turned upside down with uncertain income, social distancing, government and political turmoil, drastic changes daily, and unclear of what the future holds:
 
Describe the hope and comfort found in verses 13-21.
 
What does the word “ransom” mean to you personally in light of this passage?

Thursday    4/9/20    1 Peter 1:13-25
 
Peter gives us five incentives to encourage us to pursue holiness!
 
1.  The Glory of God             (1:13)
2.  The Holiness of God         (1:14-15)
3.  The Word of God              (1:16)
4.  The Judgement of God     (1:17)
5.  The Love of God               (1:18-21)
 
1 Peter 1:22-25
 
Now more than any other time in our lives, the church (us) should rise up seizing this moment to show and share the love of Christ.
 
What is taking place in the world, our lives today, shows how little control we have and how brief our lives are!
 
The one thing we can find comfort, hope, peace and security is in our relationship with Jesus Christ for all eternity!
 
Take a few minutes and write down how having a relationship with Jesus Christ makes a difference in the midst of this crisis and what it would be like without this relationship.
 
“But the Word of the Lord remains forever…”   1 Peter 1:25
 
Focus on the eternal, not the temporary!
 
Share the Living Hope you have in Jesus Christ with others!
