Living Differently

Author John Phillips told a story of a dear Christian friend who said to him, “You know, John, I’m not such a bad fellow.  There are many worse than I!”  Taken back by the comment, John replied, “I think you are measuring yourself by the wrong standard.  You measure yourself by those who you see on Skid Row, and you feel quite satisfied by comparison.”  John gathered himself and continued, “But go and measure yourself alongside Jesus Christ and see how you make out.” 

Let me be a little vulnerable with you here for a moment.  I’m in a season of life where I am spending a lot of time asking the question, “Is what I’m doing with my life making a difference?  Does it really matter?  Am I living my life in a way that speaks of Jesus?” 

As we continue our study of 1 Peter, I think we can get some help with those kinds of questions and really answer the question, “Am I living differently?”

I pray you can join us this coming Sunday as we continue our series “Our Good God” and look at 1 Peter 1:22 – 2:12.  I am looking forward to the opportunity to worship with you and take a deep dive into God’s Word together.
