Live Out Your New Life in the Midst of the Old

It's the age-old question for Christians: "How do we live in in the World, but not of the world?" Peter has just explained that when we believe in Jesus, we become God's children. We become His people, with access to Him, and a call to holy living. We have a new home. This is all wonderful! But when the rubber meets the road - how do we live today among people who are not God's children? Live out the New Life in the midst of the Old.

Build Your New Life on the Living Stone

Peter continues to help hurting believers by turning their focus to Christ. In this specific passage, he teaches about Jesus Christ the living stone. When believers come to Jesus the living stone, we gain stability and grow in our new life in Christ.

Love One Another with New-Life Love

Peter continues to explain how a child of God lives in a hostile world, with hope. Because they have been born again, they are to love one another with a pure and fervent love. A love that is grown from the eternal Word of God through the gospel. Only the Word of God can produce this kind of love and give hope when life hurts.
