Christian Identity

Text: 1 Peter 2:4-10
Speaker: Ryan Wentzel
Date: August 28, 2016

Who are you?  The answer seems obvious at first glance.  But what is it that really defines you?  Is it your race?  Is it success or material wealth?  Is your identity wrapped up in what other people think about you?

As a Christian, your identity is shaped by who Christ is, what he has done for you, and by the new community in which he has placed you.  In 1 Peter 2:4–10, Peter helps believers understand who they are in Christ in order to prepare them to live lives that are pleasing to God in the midst of an unbelieving world.

In preparation for listening to this sermon, please read Ephesians 2:11–22 and Exodus 19:1–6.

Growing in Divine Love and Longing

Text: 1 Peter 1:22-2:3
Speaker: Craig Marshall
Date: August 14, 2016

In our next section, Peter continues his call to Christian living as elect exiles with two commands: growing in divine love and growing in divine longing.  We’ll also see how two other Old Testament texts really shape his thinking on these topics: Isaiah 40 and Psalm 34.

In preparation for listening to this sermon, it would be helpful to read 1 Peter 1:13-2:3, as well as Isaiah 40 and Psalm 34 in their entirety.  Look for what those texts say about who God is and how he treats his people in times of trouble.

Lives Fixed on Hope

Text: 1 Peter 1:13-21
Speaker: Craig Marshall
Date: August 7, 2016

The 2016 Olympics are underway!  It is amazing to see what human beings are capable of doing in athletic competition.  These athletes have been focused on participating in this event for well over four years – many of them for nearly their entire lives.  As these competitions kicked off I found myself asking, “What have I been focused on during the last 4 years?”  In this text, we’re going to see that Peter calls Christians to set their hope fully on the coming grace.  This will affect our mindset, our actions, and our affections.

In preparation for listening to this sermon please read 1 Peter chapter 1.  Psalm 37 also expresses many of these ideas through Old Testament language and it would be helpful to read that as well.
