The Gospel

"There is none righteous, not even one"

The Bible teaches us that mankind is sinful.  All are born in sin and are sinners.  All of mankind is depraved and under God's righteous judgment; there are none who are good, not one.

As such, mankind is in need of a Savior.  The Bible teaches us that Christ is that Savior and He is the only One that can save us because He is God in flesh, the Son of God.  He has died for our sin and taken the punishment we deserved, though He is without sin; He is the perfect sacrifice, the Lamb of God.  He is our penal substitutionary atonement.  He is the only way, truth and life--we must go to Him to get to God the Father.

This is only possible through repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ.

This Sunday's Sermon Info

2 Peter 1:10-15

In the previous section of text, the Apostle Peter cautioned the saints that if they did not have the increasing and fruitful qualities, they were “blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former lusts”.  So, in this next section of text, Peter writes that they should, therefore, “be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing” them.  The real proof of their salvation was in how they practiced the things they knew were true and good, being fruitful and useful.  Even in the face of terrible persecution, Peter gives no excuse to allow them to waver.  Peter reminds them of the things they already know because they “have been established in the truth”.  Peter was facing death, and he knew it, so he was diligent to “stir you up by way of reminder”.  Peter knew that the threat of earthly death should not in any way impact the work of eternity serving Christ.  The Apostle Peter seems to be pouring himself out to the saints who are experiencing the terrible persecution.  He is writing with intensity and emotional attachment, knowing his time on this earth is short.  It is almost a reminder of those last few precious hours Christ had with the apostles before His arrest and crucifixion.  Intensely teaching them, pouring His wisdom into their lives, and encouraging them before He is arrested, falsely charged, then hung on the cross.
