Standing in Grace: Gospel Relationships

From the sermon series, “Standing in Grace: Finding Sure Gospel Footing in the First Book of Peter”

Sermon text: 1 Peter 2:13–25

     Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.

Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for
     “All flesh is like grass
          and all its glory like the flower of grass.
     The grass withers,
          and the flower falls,
     but the word of the Lord remains forever.”
And this word is the good news that was preached to you.
