"Love in the Margins" 1 Peter 1:21-2:3 (Life in the Margins)

We are living in a day and age marked by the rise of extremism at home and abroad. There is extreme fear, extreme anger, and extreme reactions to the extreme. And yet, as followers of Jesus, if there is to be any extremism that marks our life, may it be in extreme love. As Peter continues to exhort the "elect exiles" in his letter, he calls for them to love in specific and tangible ways. This week we will explore the kind of love that Jesus had in mind for His followers from the beginning. It's the kind of love that stands as counter-cultural in any age.
