Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 10.
A study on 1st Peter.

“God is more interested in our character then our comfort”

So then to part ten in our study of the book of 1st Peter. This week we look at chapter 4:12-19 on Christian suffering. The passage tells us not to be surprised when we experience suffering. Can difficulty and suffering in our lives ever be a good thing? Suffering draws us closer to God and can often be the motivation we need in our Christian lives to break the barriers that hold us back.

Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 9.
A study on 1st Peter.

“Forgiveness is not an emotion it’s a decision”

We continue our “Finding God in the storms of life” series on the book of first Peter. Week nine brings us to chapter four. It’s time to focus on God and Peter talks of leaving our old lives behind and separating our self’s from the selfish attitudes and sinful lives of the past. But above all we need to have Christian love for one another, be a praying church having and using our gifts to serve the Lord in the church and in reaching out to others.

A study on 1st Peter.

“Are we prepared to suffer for our Christian faith?”

Our series on the book of 1st Peter continues as we enter week seven, 1st Peter 3 10 -16. Many Christians around the world often suffer persecution for their faith, the reading says to rejoice for what is to come.

John 4:1-14.
“There is a season for every activity under heaven”

In today’s sermon, we’re reminded on how totally dependent we are on God’s provision. How we acknowledge and act upon the Lord’s provision will determine what will become of our future, hence the phrase, “We reap what we sow.” In order to reap a good harvest, we are called to “look,” “pray” and “go” in our journey with God. It is easy to reap a poor harvest due to how easily subjected we are to the troubles of this world, but do not lose heart. For the Lord wants us to be reminded of how much He loves us and how much He has given us. Both rain and sun are required to produce a good crop, and as long as we stay faithful will we be able to reap a good harvest.

Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 6.
A study on 1st Peter.

“a God given description of marriage that is consistent with the rest of Scripture”

Our series on the book of 1st Peter continues as we enter week six. 1st Peter 3 1-12. So perhaps a controversial passage in today’s modern culture. How are we to view this text? It's set in early Christian Roman times and speaking to women who have a Christian faith but also have unbelieving husbands. So the message here is not one of inequality but one of living a Christian life as a shining example and witness to the people around you.

Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 5.
A study on 1st Peter.

“When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to Him who judges justly.”

In the 5th part of our series of readings from 1 Peter, we turn to chapter 2 verses 11 to 25. Peter calls us to live as “slaves” for the Lord our God. This means that we are to live good lives, yield to authority and follow the Lord’s steps. As we lead such lives, we aren’t to retaliate with worldly actions when confronted with worldly opposition, but respond with the Father’s goodness. Otherwise, we would only be living as “slaves” to the world. It is so easy to be influenced by our worldly troubles, temptations and desires, but if we put the Lord first in our lives, turn to Him in times of hardships and allow Him to influence our lives, then we will be able to live a life full of hope, goodness and love.

Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 4.
A study on 1st Peter.

“We don’t just GO to church we ARE the church”

Our series on the book of 1st Peter continues. As we look at chapter two we often think of the church as a building or an organization but as Christians we are the church. Our inclusion is not through our own merits but because we are precious and chosen by God.

Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 3.
A study on 1st Peter.

“When God made you, He broke the mould”

Today in part 3 of our series of reading from 1 Peter, we turn to the final verses in chapter 1. The theme of verses 13-25 is being Holy. Peter calls us to be Holy in all our doings, sufferings and praise to our Heavenly Father who is Holy. In order to be Holy, we must remain alert, set our hope on the grace of God, live obedient lives, be respectful to others and act with sincere love in our hearts. Peter then states that it was not perishable, worldly possessions or earnings that redeemed us, but the precious Blood of Christ. As long as we lead Holy lives, our lives will be filled with the imperishable, everlasting word of the Lord.

Finding God in the Storms of Life - Part 2.
A study on 1st Peter.

“Going to church isn’t just about reading the Bible as an encyclopaedia, but about transforming our lives”

Today in the second part of our series we continue in verses 3 to 12 of chapter 1. Peter reminds us of what God has done for us and blesses us for our continued faith in Him despite our worldly troubles and limitations. Following this he explains why our faith needs to be exercised through suffering, just as the Lord Jesus Christ set out to do for our sake. He then reminds us of how the prophesies of the prophets from the Old Testament were fulfilled through Jesus Christ. Concerning all that has been fulfilled and all that God has done for us, our lives are filled with an inexpressible joy and everlasting hope.
