“The Greatness of the Gospel” from 1 Peter 1:10-12. You can listen to the sermon here.
1 Peter 1:10-12 reveals four truths about the gospel:
- The gospel reminds believers of the privilege it is to know Christ.
- The gospel gives certainty in the midst of uncertainty.
- The gospel reminds us that following Christ means suffering, then glory.
- The gospel is the good news that someone suffered for you.
For Further Study
- Read Luke 24:13-49. What do Jesus’ words to his disciples teach us about interpreting the Old Testament (see especially verses 25-27 and 44-47)?
- How does this affect your understanding of a passage like Genesis 22, for example?
For Personal Reflection
- Read through 1 Peter 1:3-12 again. List all of the ways Peter gives hope to suffering Christians.
- Which of these ways is most comforting to you in the midst of trials? Why?
