Based on the previous 12 verses, Peter now transitions us into the next portion of his letter, summarizing the truths about who we are in Him ,and looking at how we move ahead into what He wants us to be.
This message is close to my heart. We’ll look at the concept of self-image, and how our faith should radically affect the way we see ourselves. My personal conviction is that a biblical view of self is one of the greatest needs of all of us. Too often, we exert mammoth amounts of energy to present a false persona, all the while struggling with deep insecurities. Some try to offset insecurity by over-achieving, perfectionism. Some hide away in self-condemning shame. But Christ has freed us from both of these extremes, and offers something so much more. I pray we will all grow in this area through the Word we hear today.
This is an abbreviated version of the other sermon by the same title. This recording eliminates the lengthy introduction and goes right to the text which reminds us that the grace of God should be our teacher.
The grace of God teaches us to be a holy people for the glory of God. The people of God must be sober, righteous, and godly. They accomplish this by denying ungodliness and worldly lusts and by looking for the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
