Controlling What's Controllable
Key Passage: 1 Peter 3:13–4:19 Speaker: Josiah Boyd The opening stanza of the popular  “Serenity Prayer” is as wise as it is hope-filled: “God grant me the  serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the  things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” The circumstances of  life are as varied as the people who experience them. Some we can change  and control, asking God for the courage necessary. Other times,  however, we face circumstances we simply cannot change—experiences  beyond the scope of our control—and we’re forced to ask God for the  strength to accept the limits of our personal power and, instead, endure  with trust. Peter reminds Christians that suffering can often be of the  latter variety—uncontrollable, inevitable, and unavoidable. And, while  we can’t always control the suffering itself, what we can control is how we endure that suffering.

Truth and Purpose
Speaker: Andrew Longmire Key Passage: 1 Peter 1:13-2:10 When we read the Bible, there are things we are commanded to do. And whether because of our immaturity, the culture around us, or our sinful nature (or most likely a combo of the three), we often find ourselves asking "why"? As we continue to study the words of Peter to the scattered church of first century believers, we're going to see two pairs of imperatives or commands that Peter has for his readers: one pair focused on their personal lives and relationship with God, and one about their communal lives and relationships with others. But rather than leave them wondering or guessing, he immediately takes time to follow both up with an explanation, both of which are rooted in the foundational truth of their identity thanks to the gospel of Christ.
