Introduction to Grace

Sun, Apr 23, 2017
Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:1-2 (ESV) Sometimes it feels like there are those good, together, super Christians. Then there are the rest of us. We would like to do and be better but we aren’t. We seem to wrestle with the same things over and over again. Our spiritual growth seems to go through peaks and lulls. When it comes to the spiritual disciplines, well, let’s just say we had resolutions in January but now its April. Is there any hope for us? In Peter's second letter, the apostle is writing to people like you and me. They are struggling to live out their faith in a complicated and diverse world. And to add to this complexity, there are a few ‘teachers’ telling them that they have some secret special sauce to being a Christian. Peter writes this letter near the end of his life to reassure them and point them toward the one unchanging source of their righteousness - Christ.
