Bless the Haters

Episode Notes

The Christian’s allegiance to Jesus often results in being misunderstood and insulted by people around us. But we are not called to passively withdraw or to lash out in anger; we are meant to bless those who disagree with us. Continuing in our Take Heart series, Pastor Ben Stuart shows us how Peter encouraged the church to respond to those who opposed them and offers some guiding principles about navigating an increasingly antagonistic culture.

Key Verses // 1 Peter 3:8-12

Do you feel frustrated by a pattern of personal failures, overwhelmed by a chaotic culture, or disillusioned by a lack of meaning in everyday life? Your struggles do not mean you’re doomed. They’re actually a sign that you are alive. Now it’s a question of whether you will struggle well.

Pastor Ben’s new book, Rest & War, is a field guide designed to equip you to walk elegantly through the battlefield of life.

At Passion City Church, we believe that because God has displayed the ultimate sacrifice in Jesus, our response to that in worship must be extravagant. It is our privilege, and our created purpose, to reflect God’s Glory to Him through our praise, our sacrifice, and our song.
