Episode Notes

“The definitive mark of those who have been loved by God through the grace of Jesus is that we love.”

This week, we are continuing in our Take Heart series through 1 Peter by looking at the defining trait of the believer: our love for one another. In this week’s message, Pastor Ben Stuart lays out two different reasons Peter gives for why we are meant to love each other, and explores some of the ways we can love sincerely and actively.

Key Verses // 1 Peter 1:22-2:3

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.
