Now We Live

Lessons from 1 & 2 Peter


In the New Testament book of 1 Peter, the Apostle Peter writes, “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while” (1 Peter 1:6).

To be a human is to face trials in life.  But Peter’s words help us see that, as a follower of Jesus, even in suffering, we can have life.  In Chapter 1, verse 3 (NLT), Peter writes, “It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation …”

            Now we live.  What a great message of hope in a chaotic world - Now we live!  In his letter, Peter gives those who now live guidance on how to live in this living hope that we have.

            In our teaching series from 1 & 2 Peter, we will explore Peter’s direction for those who have inherited the blessing of a new life in Christ.  What can keep us going?  How can we help others have this new life too?

            Join us in June as we celebrate the truth that – Now We Live!
