Winning in Marriage

1 Peter 3:1-7 What is the key to a successful marriage? This may be the most asked question and researched subject in all of history! Why? Because, what seems to be true in most marriages today, generally speaking, is that husbands and wives live lonely, unfulfilled marital lives. The dreams of marital bliss that captured […]

Life’s Not Fair


1 Peter 2:18-25 Life is not fair! Have you ever heard one of your children say this? Have you said this? Truth is, Life is not fair. But, we serve a God who knows and sees all of life’s injustices and gives us hope in the midst of life’s unfair circumstances.

Admirable Aliens


1 Peter 2:13-17 God’s plan to bring the Gospel to the world is to use His redeemed people to spread the message of Jesus Christ. Because this message is so important, it is imperative that God’s messengers not only share the message, but also do nothing to hinder the message from being received. Not only […]

A Matter of Life & Death


1 Peter 2:11-12 Does it really matter how I live my life as a believer in Jesus Christ? After all, who really notices how I live anyway? What real impact does the way I live have on me, those closest to me, or a watching world? Well, if you ask Peter, how we choose to […]

The Rock


1 Peter 2:4-10 Who is your rock in life? A spouse? A parent? Maybe a friend? Jesus Christ is said to be the Rock. He is the only one who we can truly depend on, not only for our salvation, but for our time on earth. This Sunday, we will discover how Jesus is the Rock […]

Playpen or Paradise?


1 Peter 2:1-3 Babies are cute. We all love babies. But, we would not think they were so cute if they remained babies their entire life. Life is about growing up and becoming the adult God designed us to be. So it is with the Christian life. We are all born-again as spiritual babies. We […]

What’s Love Got To Do With It?


1 Peter 1:22-25 In 1993, Tina Turner asked the question “What’s love got to do with it?” We are still asking that question today. What does love have to do with life, relationships, and eternity? Well, it has everything to do with it. If as God’s children we are to carry out His plan for […]

Purchased for Purpose


1 Peter 1:17-21 For life to make sense, everyone needs a transcendent purpose. Not just a purpose that gets us going from day to the next, but a purpose that gives our life eternal significance. I can invest in my garden, my garage, or my gigabytes (sorry about the alliteration) but those things will not, […]

Embrace Your Weirdness, Part 2


1 Peter 1:14-16 If you missed part of 1 of this sermon, please go to our church website and listen to it before next Sunday. It is a must. Christians are weird. The things we believe and the way we live is strange to a watching world. But it’s supposed to be this way. We […]

Embrace Your Weirdness


1 Peter 1:10-13 Believers are weird. We’re supposed to be weird. At least, that’s what God says about us. We are not of this world and when those who are “of this world” see us, they think to themselves, “Christians are weird!” Now, people can be weird simply for weirdness sake, but we’re not talking about […]
