The Call to Consecration
March 3, 2019 • Dr. Danny Lovett
The Lord deals with our distractions and spiritual decline in 1 Peter 1:13-17. This Sunday we will look at the Lord's call for us to be dedicated and committed to Christ. The questions that arise at this point are - How do we respond to the call? How do we remain devoted and dedicated to decency, faithful in fervency, concrete in consistency, unwavering in urgency, patient in persistence, intense in intimacy with God, and satisfied with Christ's sufficiency in our life? God, speaking through Peter, answers these questions. Join us as we look at these biblical principles that will help us answer the call of consecration to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Inquiring minds want to know
February 17, 2019 • Dr. Danny Lovett
Inquiring Minds Want To Know! From 1 Peter 1:10-12, we see that the prophets prayed and diligently sought to understand the age when the Messiah would be sent to save men. They wanted to know the very same thing that the Lord’s disciples wanted to know when they asked about the Lord’s return. When shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world? (Matthew 24:3) What a challenge to us! If these great men of God had to search diligently for the truth of God’s word and salvation, how much more do we? This Sunday we will look how we can search for these truths.
Why do Christians suffer
February 10, 2019 • Dr. Danny Lovett
This Sunday we will be looking at the important topic of suffering. Peter acknowledges that this life will bring all kinds of trials and sufferings, but reminds us that they only last for a little while, a little season. It's to be expected that we will have periods of heaviness or sorrow for all kinds of reasons. We are also reminded by the Apostle Peter that we have great joy when we recognize that our salvation is secure. We have a joy that runs deeper than our present circumstances. The world can't bring this kind of joy! Mankind rejoices in a lot of things but nothing compares to salvation. What does this mean? This Sunday we will examine Why Christians Suffer.
