Simon Says

The Letters of 1 & 2 Peter

Our Goal This Year

September 5, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 2 Peter 3:17–18

As we move past summer into fall, it's a great time to set new goals. Peter has a goal that we as a church want everyone to consider this year.

Preparing for Eternity

August 29, 2021 • Alex Burns • 2 Peter 3:1–13

Is preparing for something big difficult to do sometimes? What if that 'something' is where you're going for eternity?

Counterfeit Christianity

August 22, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 2 Peter 2

It would be nice if false teachers looked or dressed a certain way so we could stay away, but that's not the case. But Peter helps us out by giving us some 'signs' to look for in 2 Peter 2.

It's A True Story

August 15, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 2 Peter 1:12–21

How do we know the Christian story is a true story or that the Bible can be trusted? Peter gives his best defence in 2 Peter 1:12-21.

Knowing and Growing in Jesus

August 8, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 2 Peter 1:1–11

As we start looking into 2 Peter, we are given some guidance on our purpose in life. Whether you're a Jesus follower, or still have a lot of questions, he has some answers for you.

How to Lead & Influence People

August 1, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter

Peter gives us specific qualities for church elders, but the principles prescribed could help anyone become a better leader or influencer of people.

When Suffering Surprises You

July 25, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter

Most of us balk at the thought of suffering. We think it’s a sign of punishment from God or we attribute it to living in a broken world. But Peter encourages us to rejoice in suffering. How could he say that?

What Makes a Christian Different Than A Non-Christian

July 18, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter, 1 Peter 4

Can you spot the difference between those who are Christians and those who aren't? The lives of Christians should reflect the Jesus who they follow.

Condition and Conduct

July 11, 2021 • Nate Wiens • 1 Peter

Peter give us some general encouragement and instructions on how a Christian should think, act and speak.

Relationship Goals

July 4, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter

At first glance, Peter's advice in this passage seems obsolete, offensive and out of touch. But when we remember the goal of our lives is to bring God glory in all relationships, we begin to see how Peter's words apply to our marriage and dating relationships.

The Goal of LIfe

June 27, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter, 1 Peter 2

How do you know you're living a life worthy of being called good... that the decisions you're making are right? How should we respond to authority with whom we disagree? 1 Peter 2:12 gives us the goal of life.

What's So Special About Church?

June 20, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter, 1 Peter 2

What's the big deal with church? Do I really need it? In this passage, Peter explains what makes the church so special.

Time to Grow Up

June 13, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter

In last week's message we learned that we have an future inheritance, but what should we be doing while we wait for it? Peter will give us some direction this week.

Praise God for Hard Days

June 6, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter

Peter reminds us that we can have hope in the tough times when we look at the bigger picture.

Sent, Scattered, Chosen

May 30, 2021 • Andrew Melo • 1 Peter

As we begin our study in 1 Peter, we'll see that Simon Peter had some advice for a scattered and suffering church that is still relevant for us today.
