They Break You so You Break Them

Today's Reading: Ezekiel 30-32 and 1 Peter 4

Broken from Michael Snowdon on Vimeo.

On the Vimeo page for this video, artist Michael Snowdon describes the inspiration, "In 1 Peter, I have been struck by the way Peter describes what it means to be Christian - it's not a lifestyle, but an identity. You are part of a recreated community of Jesus' people. Living this identity out in godly lives is then just part of who we are. But Peter never shies back from saying that this will involve persecution from those who don't follow Jesus, and that our temptation will be to do the same right back at them - they break you, so you break them, and sin starts spreading like fire through gasoline. Peter says no. He calls us to remember Jesus who we follow; how he endured suffering to make us right with God. He calls us to remember who we have then been made to be, freed from sin, and so to keep trusting God and living his way through persecution. 'Broken' seeks to capture something of this journey, based mainly on 1 Peter 4."
