Jun 5 2016 Power in Celebration / 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Brad Bell

As we experience celebrations and moments in life, let’s pause and take intentionality in them, allowing the Holy Spirit to move and work, rather than letting the moments slip by. And may we learn to raise our sights to see opportunities of marked moments, regardless of our circumstances and the… More

May 29 2016 Why We Submit to the Scriptures / 2 Peter 3:11-18

Brad Bell

In some ways, 2 Peter ends on a hard note. It’s a picture of what’s to come in the end, and Peter challenges his readers and us today to live with that end in mind. The patience and relenting nature of God should create a sense of urgency, not apathy, and that urgency should create a desire to share… More

May 22 2016 Patience for All to Repent / 2 Peter 3:1-10

PJ Lewis

It is the relentless love God has for people that brings out another of His characteristics: His relentless nature to punish. This may not be talked about often, but the Bible paints a picture over and over again of a God who patiently waits for the ungodly to repent. Perhaps the challenge for us is… More

May 15 2016 The Importance of the Scriptures / 2 Peter 2:10-22

Brad Bell

The Scriptures are so important that Peter continues to speak on the Word of God by way of reminder. He paints a picture of what the lives of people look like when they are not in His Word, of people who experience salvation but then end up back in their old life, enslaved by their old ways of life… More

May 8 2016 Why Read the Bible? / 2 Peter 1:20-2:10

PJ Lewis

The Bible. Almost all of us have at least one. But do we really know what we have? The words of God. The Bible is the source of direction and authority from God for life and for living, but there are people who disagree and believe there are other sources of truth and/or the Bible is untrue. The… More

May 1 2016 A Promise Made Sure / 2 Peter 1:12-19

Shea Sumlin

After spending the first 11 verses of this letter explaining the beauty and power of the gospel to save us, sustain us and sanctify us, Peter takes the time to explain why he's been so diligent to remind us of these promises over and over again. As he was an eyewitness of the full manifestation of… More

Apr 24 2016 The Joy of Obedience / 2 Peter 1:5-11

Brad Bell

Peter calls his audience to actively participate in their salvation and sanctification in response to what God has already done. He is speaking to believers who have forgotten God has set them free from their old life. They have forgotten the purification from their sins, and so they are… More

Apr 17 2016 Everything We Need / 2 Peter 1:1-4

Shea Sumlin

With only months, if not weeks, before his impending execution under the emperor Nero, the Apostle Peter writes for a second and final time to Christians scattered all over Asia Minor. Whereas in Peter's first letter he sought to encourage these believers concerning the grace Christ has provided… More

Apr 10 2016 The True Grace of God / 1 Peter 5:8-14

PJ Lewis

Some have asked, “How can a loving God allow suffering?” What if the answer is, “Because He is a loving God”? As Peter wraps up this letter, he reminds his readers of the true grace of God. True grace is not the absence of suffering. As odd as it may seem, true grace includes the presence of… More

Apr 3 2016 The Biblical Role of Elder / 1 Peter 5:1-7

Brad Bell

The church was never meant to be a hierarchy. The beauty of the church is that it is led by Jesus Christ, driven by the Holy Spirit and shepherded by godly servant leaders, also known as elders. That’s the structure of the church, by God’s design. Just as Jesus was a servant to others, elders are… More
