Campaign Memory Verse
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light- 1Peter 2:9
READ
1 Peter 1: 17-21 New International Version (NIV)
17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear. 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

REFLECT

Q. In what ways do people live their lives as though they are at home in this world? What is one concrete area of change where I can live as a stranger in the world?
Q. What are some examples of the “empty way of life” which has been passed down from previous generations? Why would perishable things never be enough to redeem my soul?
Q. What was the cost of redeeming my soul? What does that mean regarding the value of my soul? What does that mean regarding how God sees our empty way of life?
