4 1 Peter 1: As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance. 15 But as the One who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct; 16 for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy. 17 And if you address as Father the One who judges impartially based on each one’s work, you are to conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your temporary residence. 18 For you know that you were

5 1 Peter 1:14-21 redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. 20 He was chosen before the foundation of the world but was revealed at the end of the times for you 21 who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

Romans 10: But how can they call on Him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about Him? And how can they hear without a preacher? 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who announce the gospel of good things! 16 But all did not obey the gospel.

The grass withers, and the flower falls, 25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word that was preached as the gospel to you.

31 1 Peter 2:2-3 2 Like newborn infants, desire the pure spiritual milk, so that you may grow by it for your salvation, 3 since you have tasted that the Lord is good. The Word fuels a holy addiction to holy relating.

33 1 Peter 2:2-3 2 Like newborn infants, desire the pure spiritual milk, so that you may grow by it for your salvation, 3 since you have tasted that the Lord is good. Peter is calling us to become addicted to the Word.

34 1 Peter 2:2-3 2 Like newborn infants, desire the pure spiritual milk, so that you may grow by it for your salvation, 3 since you have tasted that the Lord is good. Ps. 119:16 -- I will delight in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.

Ps. 1: How happy is the man who does not follow the advice of the wicked or take the path of sinners or join a group of mockers! 2 Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted beside streams of water that bears its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

36 How does our addiction to the Word translate to holy relating?  Most of the NT is about fleshing the Gospel out in fellowship with others…  Feasting on the Word will primarily be about rooting our identity in the Gospel…  The context of Peter’s call to stir addiction to the Word is actually corporate (as it always is in the NT)

39 Some ideas for how to stir Word addiction that translates to holy relating…  Sit under good Bible teaching from people who are addicted to the Word themselves  Equip & multiply workers who are addicted to the Word  Develop a culture in which dialoguing about the Word is our lingua franca (common language) “One key to a deep friendship is time spent in long conversations... Many people do not seem to have time for long conversations. They have so many things to do! When they have free time, it is spent on entertainment... We can’t bear the thought of just sitting and discussing issues... (But such discussion) has a richness to it. It satisfies the deep desire in our hearts implanted by a God who is committed to truth. God’s understanding of truth includes more than facts. Christian truth has a qualitative and experiential aspect to it. So truth can be enjoyed only if we are willing to linger with it, to ask what its implications are, to ask how it should influence our thinking and acting...

We need to bring long chats back into our schedules, allowing significant slots of time for truth-related discussions... It is in such times that minds meet, that we experience together the joy of truth which is one of the most precious forms of joy. People who let long conversations eat into their schedules—and that is a sacrifice—will know the joy of minds meeting on a deep level. From such depths true friendships will be forged...” -Ajith Fernando in Reclaiming Friendship
