Living as a Christian: Teachings from First Peter

Overview

What makes Christians different from everyone else? Countless misconceptions prevail in our culture, and even in the Church, about what it means to be a Christian—not least the erroneous and all-too-common idea that Christians are just people doing their best to clean up their acts. People have misunderstood this concept throughout Church history.

Overview

What makes Christians different from everyone else? Countless misconceptions prevail in our culture, and even in the Church, about what it means to be a Christian—not least the erroneous and all-too-common idea that Christians are just people doing their best to clean up their acts. People have misunderstood this concept throughout Church history. The apostle Peter wrote a letter to a group of early Christians to help them understand not only what had happened when they converted, but also how they should live and what they should believe as people who had been born again. In the hands of eminent teacher A. W. Tozer, Peter’s first letter of pastoral guidance is as timely and relevant to believers today as it surely was for those Christians living in the first century. Living as a Christian will help you embrace your position in Christ as “the pride of all heaven” and show you how to live in the center of God’s redeeming love, able to withstand anything and everything that would seek to undermine your faith.
