Day 5: Check Your Submission

Bible Reading: 1 Peter 5 There’s a Yoruba saying- or is it a taunt- that I think carries so much weight. It talks about how you can call a cow your brother, because you want to eat meat.  It’s such a true depiction of how shallow and manipulatively we can actually live. Alot of the Book of 1 Peter which we’ve been studying has contained pointers to the fact that as Christians, we are called to a life beyond the…

Day 4- Check Your Following

Day 1- Check your Perspective

Bible Reading : 1 Peter 1 Happy new month and welcome to our five day study on the book of 1 Peter! Have you ever had a wrong perspective- thought wrongly of something or a situation or person because of where you were looking from?  Our perspective totally alters and affects our judgment.   Poor perspective will make you only see the lion and not see the cage it’s in- so you end up fleeing in fear. Poor perspective will…
