Episode Notes

This week, Pastor Ben Stuart kicks off our brand new journey through 1 Peter by posing a challenging question: how do we make sense of the pain and problems that arise when our allegiance to Jesus comes in conflict with the culture around us? In this message, Pastor Ben shows us four waypoints Peter gave to guide and comfort believers in troubling times, and encourages us to remember that we’re part of a story bigger than we can imagine.

Key Verses // 1 Peter 1:1-12

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.
