Summary

We saw last time, that when you are a Christian, you are a citizen of God’s worldwide, eternal kingdom (v9-10).

But the fact is that we still live surrounded by people who don’t share the same values as “holy” people. And many of our rulers are not believers. So, how should I live in society?

What I’d love is a simple list: 10 things you can do and can’t do while you live in the kingdom of this world. But what God gives us isn’t a list. it’s a principle to apply in every situation. That demands much more thought and wisdom.

So, what is this principle?

What God is Building (1 Peter 2:4-10)

Sunday 19/04/2020

At the moment, we’ve got an unusual opportunity. There’s time. I wonder how you’re using it.

Even those of us who still have full days of work or study have quieter downtime at night and on the weekend.

There’s time to reflect, to think about how our lives measure up. Maybe you’ve already decided to change some things about your life. Well, what makes our lives worthwhile? How can we be sure that, at the end, they’ll measure up?

God tells us here that the story of our lives is not what you or I make of our lives. Our lives will matter because of what God is making. The One who made the universe made it for a reason. And He measures our lives against His standard, not ours.

So, whether my life or your life has real meaning isn’t measured by our money, our families, our happiness, or our success. God tells us here, in 1 Peter 2, that whether your life has meaning is measured by where Jesus is in it.

Christ Has Surely Been Raised from the Dead (1 Corinthians 15:20-28)

Sunday 12/04/2020

This Easter Sunday, I have a story to tell you. It starts with one man. A man like any man. A man who changed the world. One perfect man whose life and death changed everything for everyone who ever lived, no matter who you are.

That person is Adam.

Oh, you were expecting me to say Jesus, were you?

Well, we’ll get to Him. But for Easter to make sense, we need to understand Adam.

“Surely This Was the Son of God” (Mark 15:33-39)

Good Friday 10th April 2020

This Easter is different for nearly everyone. National parks and camping areas are closed. There’s no CFA collection for the RCH. Children, grandchildren, and grandparents can’t be together. And Australia Post is delivering more Easter eggs than anything else.

It’s a back-to-basics Easter for us all.

So, what do you need for Easter to be Easter?
