Messages on 1 Peter

Part 4: Come Together

The church serves as a collective demonstration of the reality of Jesus, his life, his message, and his sacrifice for our sins. John 17:22-24; Philippians 2:14-15; 1 Peter 2:12

Part 3: Safe

Are we safe to be around, or do people see us as judgmental, hypocritical, or jest plain weird? How can anyone see Jesus in us if we aren’t safe enough to be around? 1 Peter 3:13-17

Part 7: The House that Jesus Built

The church, as an institution, has been the object of attack, both from the outside world and within its very ranks for centuries. Why should believers care about the way in which “the church’ is treated and portrayed? Matthew 5:13-16; Acts 20:28-31; 1 Corinthians 3:10-11; 1 Peter 2:9-12

Part 4: Holy

One characteristic that sets God apart from his creation is holiness. It is also a characteristic that becomes an important part of our faith journey as we grow in our relationship with God. Isaiah 6:1-7; Leviticus 20:26; Matthew 5:48; 1 Thess 4:7; 1 Peter 1:16

Part 8: Doing It Right

Doing the right thing, in a world gone mad, is often the most difficult thing to do. It can not only be hard but can leave you open to attack and potential suffering. How do we not lose heart? 1 Peter 3:13-17

Part 6: When Darkness Comes

Anxiety and depression have grown to epidemic proportions. Our ability to cope with the challenges of life is continually being tested. How do we manage when the darkness overwhelms us? Philippians 4:6-8; 1 Peter 5:7

Part 2: What the Devil Has on You

The Bible teaches that there are three forces intent on making life messy. The more aware we are of their tactics, the better we can protect ourselves from their attacks. The first warning is against our greatest enemy; the devil. John 8:44; 1 Peter 5:8-9

Believe 101 – Part 9: Tension

With belief comes challenges and seasons of attacks. These trials can come in many forms but when experienced through the lens of faith, they produce more than we can possibly imagine. 1 Peter 1:3-9
