Sermons from May 2014
In 1:1-12 Peter describes our great salvation. Wholeness is given to us as a gift, purchased by the Lord Jesus Christ. In 1:13-21 Peter tells us what the response to this great salvation should be.
It is one thing to know the gospel in your head & be able to articulate it accurately but it is altogether another when the truth of the gospel captivates your heart. The Gospel isn�t the ABC�s of the Christian faith but the A to Z of the Christian faith. Growth in Christ is never going beyond the gospel, but going deeper into the gospel
Because this world was made by a triune God, relationships of love are what life is really all about. The essence of Christianity isn�t rules, rituals or routines but about relationships.
Holiness (wholeness) and hardship are inextricably connected. Fiery trials don’t have to make you bitter but can make you better. It’s not what happens TO you but IN you that matters most. It�s your Biblical world view or lack thereof that makes you or breaks you.
