Text: 1 Peter 4:7-11
Don’t waste your life.
Peter establishes a sense of urgency within the hearts of his audience.  He declares that the end is at hand, meaning that everything necessary for Christ’s return has been accomplished and nothing more than the patience of the Father for the sake of sinners is delaying his return.  In light of the imminent return of Christ, Peter calls on all believers to live prepared for his return.  He does not call us to crazy actions or lifestyles but declares that being prepared is simple.  The end of all things is at hand so pray, love, and serve.
