There are four categories that each and every blog post fits into. Much of this website is based in 1 Peter’s call to Christian’s living “as exiles and sojourners.” Though we belong to the Kingdom of God, we live in a world where many do not know or recognize the King.
2 Peter 2:11-12 says, “Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.“
He then goes on to explain how to live as a Christian in more detail. Peter addresses three key areas:
1) Communities – 1 Peter 2:13-17
As Christians, we are called to “be subject to every human institution (v. 13)” and to “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor (v. 17).” Blog posts in this section will relate to how Christians should live and interact with those in their community. From national government to your Homeowner’s association or your church to your book club, we’ll discuss how to honor those in your community and be a representative for Christ.
2) Workplace – 1 Peter 2:18-25
Verse 18 says, “Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust.” Working relationships operated a bit differently in Peter’s day. Fortunately, most people reading this won’t have to worry about employers who beat you as a motivational tool. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be mistreated, and it doesn’t mean you won’t face injustice. Posts in this category focus on how to represent Christ in your workplace and, at the same time, help your company succeed.
3) Family – 1 Peter 3:1-7
