The Church Living with the End in Mind

by David Daniels on

In his second letter to Christians living as strangers in the present world, the Apostle Peter urges his readers to reject the influence of false teachers and hold fast to the virtues of their salvation. As we anticipate the Lord’s return, we continue to look and live higher up.



True North

by David Daniels on

Sometimes, the Christian can find themselves wandering—off course and away from the things of God. The danger, of course, is that “He who strays from the path of understanding comes to rest in the company of the dead” (Proverbs 21:16). The short, but rich, New Testament books of 1, 2, and 3 John offer a reorientation.

Looking, Living, and Longing for the Life To Come

by David Daniels and Roger Sappington on

Christians are strangers in this world and, therefore, don’t look like this world. Our alien disposition can invite suffering, the consequence of being aligned with Jesus rather than our culture. In his letter to a church under pressure, the Apostle Peter encourages God’s people to live surprising, Christ-centered, and Kingdom-oriented lives as they look forward to the glory to come. Through the important book of 1 Peter, the church today is reminded that we are not of this world and must look, live, and long for a life that is "higher up."
