Mixed Emotions

ENGLISH

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials.—1 Peter 1:6

This last year has produced a lot of emotions in men—more than we care to admit. We have felt many emotions all at the same time and on some days more than others. These emotions have the power to alter our gaze and make men confused, angry, and calloused. But Peter demands a positive response, one that's proactive yet still full of emotion. It's a response activated by the man who is fixed on the revelation of God in a time of various trials. And when we are fixed in faith in God when we have been grieved, we know a joy that leads to rejoicing.

ASK THIS: Are you full of emotion?

DO THIS: Fix your eyes on God, endure the suffering, and rejoice.

PRAY THIS: God, life is confusing, but you are not. Help me fix my eyes on you. Let me rejoice.

A Guarded Revelation

ENGLISH

...who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time—1 Peter 1:5

These days we seek protection. Protection from hate, evil, inequity, untruth, sickness, and every kind of loss. We will be tempted to take things into our own hands, and therefore we might end up impeding the plan of God. But God's plan has always been for man to act in faith. He's got a plan, and he doesn't need our help. What God wants us to do is to trust his plan with his power. He wants us to let him guard us because his power is better than our feeble efforts. He wants us to live by faith, guarded for his salvation that is ready to be revealed.

ASK THIS: Are you impeding God's plan or acting in faith by trusting him?

DO THIS: Trust Him!

PRAY THIS: God, I know I get in your way sometimes. Help me trust you more, act in faith, and therefore let your plans win out.

PLAY THIS: Elevation: I Will Trust.

Blessings Within Reach

ENGLISH

...to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.—1 Peter 1:4

We have an inheritance. It's guaranteed. It's coming. And our inheritance has characteristics that are imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. It's not like leftovers that were once good but now covered in moldy fuzz in your fridge. It's not like those relationships which we once cherished but are now corrupted by sin. It's not like that accomplishment that's tarnishing on your shelf. Nope—it has none of those passing qualities because it's an inheritance given by God, and it's kept in heaven for you.

ASK THIS: Are your treasures perishing, defiling, and fading?

DO THIS: Then get a better treasure. God has one for you!

PRAY THIS: God, I need your treasure. The one you've set aside for me. God, I will live today with the sight of this treasure, becuase everything else around me is perishing, defiling, and fading.

Mercy Makes Life

Mercy Makes Life

ENGLISH

According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead—1 Peter 1:3

Mercy is only possible where there is a need for it. This means we desire it when we need it most.

In the opening verses of Peter's letter, we hear a call to Jesus' mercy, which provides a living hope. And no one knew Jesus' mercy like Peter. Yes, this was the same Peter who denied Christ three times—yet according to his great mercy, he was reinstated and became a force for the kingdom. But there's even greater mercy. It's the mercy granted by his resurrection. It rescues all mankind from eternal death. In his death, all men are brought to life again.

Fellas, we have a God of great mercy. He would not be called Merciful if we did not have great need. Enjoy this, for the reaches of your sin, is nothing compared to the infinite reach of his mercy.

ASK THIS: Do you need mercy?

DO THIS: Stop rejecting it. Jesus is ready to give it. And it's endless as the sea.

PRAY THIS: God, I accept your life, death, and resurrection. Extend your mercy to me, a sinner.

Do You Feel Like An Exile

Do You Feel Like An Exile

ENGLISH

To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.— 1 Peter 1:1

Now, more than ever, we know what it means to be an exile. Fellas, the church has been rocked, and ripples have been felt across your city, country, and world. Large percentages of men have left the church, and some will never return. It’s time to come to terms with what God has done because there is no turning back. He has removed all comfort and separated “the wheat from the chaff.” God has done so not so that we would turn back to former comforts, but to turn our sights to future comforts. And in this present discomfort, we get a new title. If you are reading this today, then let’s embrace this title together. You and I are Elect Exiles. We were chosen for this time! Embrace it. Declare it. Savor it. Live it. There is no turning back. This is our new normal. Welcome to the Dispersion.

ASK THIS: Are you with me?

DO THIS: Embrace your new title.

PRAY THIS: God, may I come to terms with what you are doing. May I be a new man, husband, father, and leader. I am willing to be your elected exile.

How To Stop The Progress Of Sin

ENGLISH

My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.—James 5:19-20

Fellas, men are wandering. They are wandering because their world has been turned upside down by marriage failures, job losses, sicknesses, addictions, and all kinds of oppression. While it is tragic, it is an opportunity for souls to be brought back from wandering and death. Each of us knows one man that can be brought back from the downward spiral of sin. Today allow your mind to be prompted by God's Spirit for a brother's name. Then reach out to him and bring him back—not to your way but to God, and in so doing cover over a multitude of potential sins.

ASK THIS: Who is a brother that comes to mind?

DO THIS: Call, text, or email this bother and pray with him.

PRAY THIS: God, bring to mind one name. Give me the courage to call and bring him back.

The Powerful Prayers of Righteous Men

ENGLISH

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.—James 5:16

We live in a twisted world. One that is more rapidly becoming divided by sin. But what we are experiencing can be healed. It is healed through confession and prayer—of a righteous person. Brothers acting in rebellion to sin with more sin is not the answer. But a righteous man can usher in a time of healing. It beings with a confession of sin and prayer. And let this work—for the prayer of the man who is right with God has great power.

ASK THIS: What do you need to confess?

DO THIS: Confess and let someone pray for you. Start a healing movement!

PRAY THIS: God, I confess my sin of selfishness. Heal me. Heal our land.
