Conflict Resolution

06 18 I Peter 2:11-12 Peter begins with this passage to address how Christians are to live as an example before non-believers.  He reminds us that we are just passing through to our heavenly home, but while here we have a responsibility to evangelize through our godly character.  What kind of godly example are we giving […]

The Other Side

Mr. Randy Chamberlain takes a look at the familiar episode of the Good Samaritan and discusses the other side.  Are we more prone to be like those who took a look and then passed on by the other side or are we like the Samaritan, though inconvenienced, saw a need and assisted in the well-being of […]

Let’s Eat

05 21 I Peter 2:2-3 What is it you crave?  Peter exhorts us to crave pure spiritual milk.  How hungry are you to spend time in God’s Word?  We should have an insatiable desire, a longing for it that never diminishes.  From it we grow up in respect to our salvation as we taste the goodness […]

Thrown Them Off

05 14 I Peter 2:1 Encouraging believers in the previous chapter to live a holy life and love others sincerely, Peter now mentions several sins that we are to throw off.  They should not be part of the Christian’s character.  Their presence disrupts unity in the church.  We are to get rid of them.

05 07 I Peter 1:23-25 We find in today’s message that the Word of God saves.  The gospel – Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again – is the power of God to salvation for all who believe.  The Word of God endures and is living and is the message we are to […]

Love Always

04 30 I Peter 1.22 Love always.  That’s the general theme of Peter’s exhortation to do so sincerely and fervently.  Our love for each other in the body of Christ is a testimony to a watching and wondering world.  What kind of love are we showing each other?  There are plenty of opportunities.  May it be […]

Setting Us Free

04 16 I Peter 1.17-21  As we celebrate Easter we once again realize that Christ’s sacrifice was essential to set us free.  From Ranger Joe’s catalogue comes an intriguing message for Easter not intended for Easter but with a message that certainly has the underpinnings of an Easter message.  “There is something reassuring about a […]
