Download and print these theme-related scriptures or pick up a copy from the C3W table in the atrium at Knox. Cut them out and keep them close at hand—in your car, your purse, taped to a kitchen cabinet, on your desk at work…so that you can be encouraged by our Scripture road map as you follow Jesus far from home!
God’s commands are always intended for our good, so His command to hide His Word in our hearts is a means of blessing. With that in mind, you’re invited to join your C3W sisters to commit the letter of 1 Peter to memory this year! It’s full of rich and often familiar passages that will challenge, encourage and comfort you as you seek to follow Jesus far from home.
Peter’s letter to the first century Christian exiles will ring true today as we experience the alienation of being citizens of Jesus’ Kingdom in a world that increasingly dismisses that reality. This may seem a daunting challenge but let’s give it a try and see how far we get. We’ll check in with each other over the next few months to share encouragement, see how the Lord is blessing us and celebrate however far we’ve gotten with a dinner together in May. Happy memorizing! Sign up to let others know you’ve taken up the challenge.
