This Sunday we continue our sermon series in 1 Peter by learning what it means to be a Christian who lives in the world but is not of the world. Peter gives us some real practical advice on how we can live in the freedom and contradictions as sojourners in the land.
This week as we have church online we continue to look at 1 Peter. This time the first part of chapter two tells us we need to seek pure spiritual milk so that we can grown in salvation for we are God’s chosen people, a Holy Priesthood.
