1 Peter Series message 5
Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16
Picture this first chapter as a door. Written on the outside of the door are all the wonderful details of our great salvation. The door opens on the "hinge", which is the first word in verse 13: therefore. In light of God's bountiful goodness, seen in our salvation, we now walk through the door into the Christian life. How do we live in light of eternity, knowing we are deeply loved by God? The key is our mindset: prepare our minds for action, be sober minded, and set our hope completely on Christ's return.
