We hope that you each had a wonderful week beginning your journey in 1 Peter! This week, we get to begin delving into Week 2 with you, your families, and your groups. In chapter one of 1 Peter, we’re learning about the enduring, eternal inheritance that we have! There is much cause for rejoicing as we fix our eyes & hearts on what is lasting, instead of on what is temporary.
There are a few resources we’d like to point you to today, which you can also share with other Sword Study families. Each week throughout the summer, a new Family Encourager will be found on here on this page of our website. These encourager posts are full of 1 Peter-focused family activities that we hope you’ll enjoy!
Also, check out our social media pages, where we’ll be tracking through 1 Peter right alongside you! Our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Google+ pages all hold fun things in store this summer. We’d also love to have you join the conversation & online encouragement surrounding 1 Peter by using the hashtags #1PeterSS and #SwordStudySummer.
This week, we’re holding a coloring contest! Simply share your “Inheritance” coloring page with us to enter to win. The deadline to submit your coloring page is Saturday, June 18th at 10am (EST). You can find all of the details here on this page: www.WordintheFamily.org/Color
As we go deeper in 1 Peter, we’re reminded of these words from Be Thou My Vision. Remembering our inheritance truly shifts our focus & priorities.
Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise;
Thou mine inheritance, now and always;
Thou and thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my treasure thou art.
Let’s take the opportunity this week to dwell & rejoice in the knowledge that the Lord is our treasure & reward.
P.S. Stay tuned for the Week 2 Kindling Video, in which we’ll highlight Scripture memory tools later this week!
