As Peter faced the end his life on earth he found rest in the certainty of his salvation. His farewell address to the church sought to encourage them with the same assurance he drew from God's Word.
But he also sought to warn the believers of danger that lurked ahead, namely in the form of false teachers seeking to draw the church away from the truth. Just as it was relevant to the situation facing the church in the first century, so the church faces the same threats today.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
People prepare a will in order to identify how to handle possessions at the time of passing. A testament is a statement of beliefs; a credo; a statement of what is of utmost importance.
In his epistle to the church in Asia Minor, Peter spells out what is most important. He reminds the church what they have in Jesus Christ.
As you listen to today's lesson, may the Lord bless you at the teaching of His Word.
Thank you for listening.
We work hard. We follow the "rules." We try to live out our faith to the best of our ability. But trials still come and we are tempted to ask, "Is it even worth it?" But in the midst of this, James tells us to "count it all joy when you fall into various trials..." How is this possible? What does this look like? In this lesson, we explore what scripture has to say about trials, especially the purpose of trials and the hope that all believers in Jesus Christ have as their eternal resource to go through the trials of life.
