Good afternoon beloved. I hope you’ve had a godly week learning to grow in grace, spending time in His Word and choosing to trust God in the valley’s and on the mountain tops of our daily lives.
This is what our text this week in 2 Peter 1:12-21 focuses on: remembering and reminding each other if the assurances we have in our faith, in the gospel, in Jesus, in His Word and in the God of our salvation by His Spirit. It is helpful, necessary and a powerful tool in keeping us faithful to the Lord. This will be an encouraging time in our study together. Please read Psalm 8 to prepare your hearts and minds for worship.
In the matchless glory of the One Triune God! Pastor Steve
For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Complaining is unbecoming of the true Christian and yet we are proficient at it. The cure is found in these verses. In Christ we are never hopeless or forsaken. Every trial has meaning. Meditate on this cure in order to change both your language and your heart.
“Sacred honor” isn’t a phrase we use much these days, but every American life is touched by the bounty of this, the Founders’ legacy. It means dedicated and devoted to God to uphold moral integrity, strength of character, and ethical principles for the betterment of all. It is freedom, tested by blood, and watered with tears. Especially as Christians, let’s not take our freedom for granted.
EPISTLES STUDY – TOMORROW MORNING, JUNE 411 7:00AM AT FLAMINGOS DINNER! We will be starting the book of Galatians, The Magna Carta of Christian Freedom! Looking forward to our fellowship together. Love you brothers! Pastor Steve
“Grace is a provision for men who are so fallen that they cannot lift the ax of justice; so corrupt that they cannot change their own natures; so adverse to God that they cannot turn to Him; so blind that they cannot see Him; so deaf that they cannot hear Him; and so dead that He Himself must open their graves.” -G.S. Bishop
“The Lord may not give gold, but He will give grace: He may not give gain, but He will give glory. He will certainly send us trial, but He will give grace in proportion thereto. We may be called to labor and to suffer, but with the call there will come all the grace required.” -Spurgeon
