Standing in Grace: Gospel Affection

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

Sermon text: 1 Peter 1:22–25

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.

Parable of the Sower

Sermon text: Luke 8:4–15

And when a great crowd was gathering and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable, “A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell along the path and was trampled underfoot, and the birds of the air devoured it. And some fell on the rock, and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up with it and choked it. And some fell into good soil and grew and yielded a hundredfold.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
