The Christian Life
May 1, 2022 • Pastor Christopher Thompson • 2 Peter 3:10–18
Twenty-Five weeks ago, we began our journey in the Christian Life with Peter. Having seen that we have a Living Hope and should live differently as we stand against false teachers, we conclude with the truth that we can Live Confident because our King is coming back and our future is secure.

Having denounced the false prophets and their foolish theologies, Peter bringing his second letter to a conclusion, begins chapter three, reminding His audience to remain focused on the Truth and promises of God’s Word and Live Remembering.

This past week we saw the arrogance and audacity of the false teachers as they presumed to have something to offer beyond Christ Himself. This week we conclude our discussion of false teachers and see that though they may come with alluring well-crafted words, they are empty and hollow, and their promises of liberty are quite the opposite. Though in this life, it may appear as though they are beautiful and prosperous, their eternal end will be ruin.

Last week we discussed that through what Christ has done on the cross there are no additional paywalls that need to be surmounted, rather, Christ through the payment of His blood made available to every man, woman, and child access to the Kingdom of God, unhindered.

“What must I do to inherit eternal life,” a question asked by the Rich Young Ruler in Matthew 19 and millions since. The answer is simple, “…Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved….” Acts 16:31. But many struggle with the simplicity of this answer and have been led astray by lies that there is more they must do, whether by works or money. But the truth is that the blood of Jesus has purchased an all-access pass to God’s Kingdom, and there is no paywall.

It is all too easy for many to hear the gospel's truth, make a few life changes and move on with their lives as usual. But, as we continue our Christian Life series in the Book of 2 Peter, we see a better way to "Live Growing."

If you live differently for Christ in a world hostile to Him, you can expect suffering of one sort or another to be close at hand. This week, we continue in the 1 Peter chapter 4 and see that we can and should Live Rejoicing as believers.

Most of us have had an experience where someone failed to do their job; maybe you were that person. We know the frustration that occurs; we know the potential chaos that can ensue. We recognize the importance of people doing what they are supposed to do. This week we continue in our Christian Life series and see the importance of us as believers to have…

With courts upholding mandates that threaten livelihoods. A culture that is increasingly hostile to the gospel. How are we as believers in Christ to handle “Living Under Pressure?” Join us this week as we continue in the book of First Peter, our series on “The Christian Life.”

Most Christians do not spend the day thinking of their responsibilities as a believer in Christ. We certainly do not think that we have pastor-level responsibilities. Those are reserved for the educated and those crazy enough to do such work. But what if I told you that each believer is a priest. Not just any priest, Royal Priests. This week, we continue in our “The Christian Life” series and discuss our responsibility as Royal Priests.

What if you could do anything and not die? What would you do? How would you live? Today we continue in our series "The Christian Life" and see that Peter communicating to those under increasing persecution calls them to…"Live Imperishable."
