Episode Notes

What do we do when our allegiance to Jesus puts us at odds with the dominant culture?

This week, Pastor Ben Stuart is back at it in our Take Heart series through 1 Peter. As Peter’s letter shifts from our identity in Jesus to our actions as His followers, Pastor Ben shows us that we are not meant to fight AGAINST people with different world-views and lifestyles; we fight FOR them.

Key Verses // 1 Peter 2:11-17

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.
