7. Living as Exiles

Last week was a call to obedience from Peter. This week he tells us to conduct ourselves in the fear of God. The natural question is, what does that mean? Peter is going to help us better understand what the Bible means by “fear.”

6. A Call to Holy Living

7.png

In verses 1-12 of 1 Peter, the Apostle Peter reminded us that our hope is not in ourselves but in the grace and salvation of Jesus. As we move into verse 13, we see Peter switch and show us where our human obedience lies. We are saved by Jesus’ grace, and out of our love for him, we strive to be holy and we walk in humble obedience to him.

4. Glorifying God Through Trials

5.png

Suffering is hard. It’s really hard. But, as followers of Jesus, there is a purpose. It’s doing something in us. We are being tested and refined by fire, but like Peter says, we are more precious than gold. And one day, we will see, taste, and experience our full salvation that is more precious than gold.

3. A Living Hope

4.png

Often we come to the scriptures it feels like we aren’t fed by God’s word because we are unsure of what to do with it. The simple tools of observation, interpretation, and application help us immensely when seeking to truly understand the real meaning of the text. In 1 Peter 1:3-5 we see simple glorious truths: God is worthy of praise, God has made a way for us to be born again, God is giving us a heavenly inheritance that cannot change, and we are being kept by God through faith.

2. Elect Exiles

As we work together as a church to fight to glorify God while enduring suffering, we can’t do it in a “do it ourselves” mentality. We have to be rooted in our identity as sons and daughters of God, and constantly be reminded of what God did for us when he saved us from our sin.

1. Introduction and Reading of 1 Peter

The original letter from Peter would have been passed around throughout the churches of the dispersed and read aloud to the people gathered there. On this Sunday, we wanted to do just that, as well.

The Last Table

After all the meals we’ve seen Jesus eat with people, there is one meal that stands above all. The one that’s full of hope when the bridegroom fully unites with his bride.

Seeing Jesus at the Table

IMG_7921.PNG

This story of disciples that knew the facts but couldn’t see Jesus makes us ask the question: What does it take for someone to see Jesus as their hope? Through the text we see that there must be opening of their eyes by Jesus himself to see him and believe. And it’s often in the mundane things that Jesus ultimately reveals himself.

The Generosity of the Table

An incredible truth from a familiar parable, the Prodigal Son, that God loves sinners. In this sermon we see that God joyfully demonstrates is love for prodigals and the prideful, at great cost to himself, by sending Jesus to die for us.

A Table For Hypocrites

In this passage Jesus says to the Pharisees and Lawyers: You look ok on the outside, but really you are not ok on the inside. Jesus doesn't ever wound for the sake of inflicting pain. Jesus is going to reveal their deepest faults so that they can be cleansed from within.
