Who In The World Are You Again? #1

Sunday Evening 2022-04-10 Lesson Posted by Morningside Church Of Christ on Saturday, 9 April 2022 We come across people and we wonder who they are, and they wonder who we are. We can be overly familiar thinking they know us, and we know them, and we can get ourselves into trouble sometimes. There may not necessarily be a spark of friendship there, so we must be careful with how we deal with other people. 1 Peter 2:9 9 But you…

Where Do I Fit? #3 “How Are You Handling Your Strengths?”

•We face two questions regarding our strengths: 1.“How can I use this gift to promote myself?” 2.“How can I use this gift to serve others in Christ?” 1 Peter 4:10 10 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

Where Do I Fit? #2 My Talents Are …

•To qualify for kingdom work, cultivate the fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22–23).22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 1 Peter 1:16 16 because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

The Word of God #4 – Book of Discovery

•THE IKEA BIBLE • •Some view the Bible as an impossible mission. •Hard to read. •Hard to learn. •Too many facts. •Strange people. •Old customs. •Beyond them. 1 Peter 1:10-11 10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 [a]seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories [b]to follow.

What on Earth #2 – Is Being Perfect?

Some seek perfection in order. Some seek perfection in obedience. Being Perfect – Dictionary definition (a) being entirely without fault or defect (b) satisfying all requirements (c) corresponding to an ideal standard or abstract concept 1 Peter 5:10 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.

Words to Live By Part 7 – Be Holy

Isaiah 6:3 3 And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,The [a]whole earth is full of His glory.” 1 Peter 1:16 16 because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” Revelation 4:8 8 And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night [a]they do not cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who [b]is to come.”

The Souls Anchor – Hope

⦁ That heartfelt, joyful conviction that this temporary life has an eternal future. ⦁ Glorying in an all-knowing, and all caring God.⦁ Confident that needs of our body and soul will be satisfied, here and in eternity. Hebrews 6:19 19 [a]This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters [b]within the veil, 1 Peter 1:13 13 Therefore, [a]prepare your minds for action, [b]keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace [c]to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus…

The Narrow Road Part 3 – To Love Kindness

It’s hard to find anything more beautiful than kindness… And hard to find anything more ugly than cruelty. 1 Peter 3:8-10 8 [a]To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; 9 not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but [b]giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. 10 For, “The one who desires life, to love and see good days,Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.

The Narrow Road Code Part 2 – But to do justice

To do justly—To give to all their dueTo do justly—Jesus and usJustice demands that man dies away from GodJesus took the curse 1 Peter 3:18 18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the [a]spirit;
