Sunday 13th September - This is Living: Praise & Hope

How should we live as Christians today? Our new six week sermon series in the letter of 1 Peter asks this question.

Peter writes to the early church which was finding life and faith hard in the face of persecution. His words have truth for us today. As Jesus lived so should we, as living examples of the good news of God’s love.

Today we start in chapter 1 thinking about praise. Peter begins his letter full of praise of God and all that he had done for us through Jesus. Why do we find praising God so hard?
