Scripture: 2 Peter 1:1-11 | Series: Eastertide 2017
In Peter's second letter to the churches in Asia Minor he appeals to the risen Christ as everything we need for life. For him, Jesus' resurrection wasn't just a proof that Jesus is who He claimed to be - it was power; power enough to make a new world, beginning with us. It comes to us through a person and His promises - but it is felt primarily in our practices. It is by pursuing virtue, in the power of His resurrection, that we can experience the kingdom of God, which is to know the love that makes us new.
