Discussion Time: 1 Peter 1

On Sunday, we changed the usual pattern. It wasn’t just one person talking to us, we were led in a reading of Scripture and then asked to share with each other.  I got to thinking, why stop on Sunday?  Let’s continue. The more people who join in, take risks in answering, the better the discussion. 

We’re talking about 1 Peter 1  this week.  Let’s go through the questions day by day and see if we can extend the conversation through the end of the week.

Here’s the question for today:

What relationship do believers have to the world in which we live?

I know what a lot of you are thinking, “Better wait until an expert answers, don’t want to get it wrong.”  But here’s the thing, being willing to answer questions is so important to deepening our faith.  Our answers are drawn from our experiences and so its really helpful to learn how different people would answer this. This is also important because we might be in situations where people ask us questions, and if we haven’t practiced answering, or are afraid to answer, those asking won’t think there are answers.  That’s why it’s important to have discussions. We get different perspectives and we get into the habit of having answers for the hope we have (1 Peter 3:15-16).

So, take a risk, post an answer to the question in the comments, talk with friends.  Let’s build the habit of continuing conversations that start on Sunday and let the themes of Scripture shape our week.
