Hallowed Be Your Name

Today’s passage begins with what might appear to be a pretty dark statement: “the end of all things is near.” It may evoke images of a rumpled street preacher with a sandwich board hung from his neck announcing coming destruction on all who pass by.

But to read the verse that way is to inject it with an unmitigated darkness it simply does not possess. In fact, it points to a future much brighter, much more full of hope—indeed, a future that reshapes how we live now.

Title: Hallowed Be Your Name

Text: 1 Peter 4.7–11
