Living in Faith
1 Peter 4:12-19
Message Summary Statement:
Peter does not mince words - followers of Jesus will experience hard times for obeying God's will. Peter coaches the early church not to be surprised when suffering occurs. Believer's in Jesus should not try to avoid trials as if suffering could not be a part of God's plan for our life. How then is a disciple of Jesus to respond? Pastor David will continue to mine the powerful truths from the letter of 1 Peter to answer this question so we can apply them to our life story. Read 1 Peter 4:12-19 several times as you prepare to Celebrate God's Glory this Sunday.
Join us this Sunday at 10 a.m. to proclaim our need of God's presence and power as we prayer walk around the campus before our Celebration Gathering! This is the foundation of our of ability to Glorify God and love one another. We are thankful for Carolyn Dellinger's prayer points each week. Please come ready to pray!
James 5:10 “Brothers and Sisters, follow the example of the prophets who spoke for the Lord. They suffered many hard things, but they were patient.” Pastor David’s Midpoint mentioned Joy and genuine fellowship. He asked ,what yields such a great return? His answer was “Suffer”. Those who participate in the suffering of Christ will also take part in His glory when He is revealed. What a wonderful message to know that when this comes our way, we can truly identify with Christ as our true Master. Father, prepare your children to take a stand for your Son Jesus during these bad times in our world today.
Pray for spiritual power and depth. Comprehend His love, pray
for the fullness of His love, pray that God will fill us with His fullness and Holy Spirit.. then pray that we will spend our lives giving it away. Dear Heavenly Father fill us with the willingness to be the answer to prayer.
Satan attacks us in our strong areas. He is an illusionist, using trickery to deceive and mislead. Only God can work unmistakable miracles. P(praise) R(Repentance) A( asking) Y(yes). When you pray like this, you can expect God to respond in accordance with His own sovereign, eternal will and His boundless love for you.
