Serving Jesus in Our Community

Bible Notes

1 Peter 2:11-12 (24.09.20)

1 Peter 2:11-12 NIV
[11] Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. [12] Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.

Because of what God has called us to be, Peter calls us to live in a fresh way – not by the same tired rules of the world around us but as people who belong elsewhere…who march to a different drum beat and so we can take time to show Gods compassion, we can take our resources and use them for the one who loves us and calls us to share his love with others.

Well, everyone needs compassion
A love that’s never failing
But let mercy fall on me
Well everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations
(Hillsong Worship)
