1P04 Adornment -- A Stranger In Your Own Hometown5/26/07

In our 4th in this series on 1 Peter “A Stranger In Your Own Hometown” we will examine a passage that has been often misunderstood because of preconceived ideas–1 Peter 3:3

When many people read this verse they see it as a prohibition of jewelry. Yet when we use this text simply to outlaw jewelry we miss the main point. When you find out what this verse is really saying I think you will be truly blessed.

Key Passage: 1 Peter 3:3-4

1P03 The Cornerstone -- A Stranger In Your Own Hometown5/19/07

With all the magnificent and important things that happened in the life of Moses it may be surprising that a simple rock became the deciding factor of whether he would see this mission completed. Numbers 20:6-13 tells us that when the people were quarreling because they had no water God told Moses to speak to a rock and water would come out. But when, in a fit of rage, Moses struck the rock God sent water pouring out but told Moses that because of his disobedience he would not get to enter the Promised Land. The Rock that was a blessing to the people was a snare to Moses.

Today in our third sermon in this series on 1 Peter we will see how our response to a Rock can change everything.

Key Passage: 1 Peter 2:4-10

1P02 Be Holy -- A Stranger In Your Own Hometown5/5/07

Part 2, BE HOLY

This week I was in Mike’s Taco Casa getting some burritos for Heather and I when a mother and a bunch of little kids came in. In about a minute I had a hunch that they were related to the employee behind the counter so I asked if this was true. They seemed surprised that I could tell but confirmed that they were related. How could I tell? After observing dressing styles, facial features and the way that they interacted with the employee, there was an undeniable connection. I wonder, if someone were to observe my dressing style, facial expressions, and interaction with the world, would they be able to tell that God and I are related? Would they be able to tell the same about you?

Today is our second in the series based on 1 Peter, “A Stranger In Your Own Home Town”. Last time we talked about the benefits of the new birth into God’s family. If we really do have a different nationality and culture then shouldn’t we also act differently?

Key Passage: 1 Peter 1:13- 2:3
