Be Hopeful! (1 Peter 5:10-11)

These two verses conclude the body of the letter and in many ways contain the message of the letter as a whole!This whole letter has been a message of hope!

Be Watchful! (1 Peter 5:8-9)
June 3, 2012, Pastor Scott

It is no secret that as believers we have an enemy that is out to get us! An enemy whose goal is to seek and destroy! This is especially true in times of suffering and persecution. Peter, in turn, challenges his readers to know that the onslaught is coming and to be prepared! BE PROACTIVE and REACTIVE! Be Watchful!

Be Humble! (1 Peter 5:5-7)

In order to glorify God in light of the suffering and persecution that is happening and that is going to intensify Peter challenges his readers and in turn us, to…BE HUMBLE! Are you demonstrating humility in your life? It is a good indicator of where your relationship with God is!

Called to Lead (1 Peter 5:1-4)

Rethink Life (1 Peter 4:12-19) PART II
May 6, 2012, Pastor Scott

Peter’s readers much like you and I tend to think that if we are Christians and belong to God then life should be easy and free from suffering. I mean after, all God is in control and He watches over us, surely this means He will protect us from all harm in this life. Well, in 4:12-19 Peter deals with this mentality by basically telling them that if that is they way that you think life as a Christian should be, you need to RETHINK LIFE! (This is PART II of the sermon) Pardon the first few seconds - we had camera difficulties!
