Growing in Divine Love and Longing
In our next section, Peter continues his call to Christian living as elect exiles with two commands: growing in divine love and growing in divine longing. We’ll also see how two other Old Testament texts really shape his thinking on these topics: Isaiah 40 and Psalm 34.
In preparation for listening to this sermon, it would be helpful to read 1 Peter 1:13-2:3, as well as Isaiah 40 and Psalm 34 in their entirety. Look for what those texts say about who God is and how he treats his people in times of trouble.
