Join us for the riveting conclusion of our study of Second Peter, where we tackle the timing of God as He is working in our lives, confront Peter’s blistering summary of the end of the ages, and then marvel as pastor John gives us a compelling snapshot of the glorious realities that [...]

In part 1 of our 2-part study in Chapter 3, we’re instructed in the base foolishness of those arguments seeking to mock and discredit the return of Christ, while at the same time discovering just how intelligent the Christian faith is. Peter takes an apologetic turn in defending the Creation and the [...]

Peter completes his teaching on false teachers in our final study in Chapter 2.  This week, Peter tells us that these men bring false promises, that they offer a false freedom, that they themselves are false believers, and that they have had a false religious experience, never having experienced the new birth [...]

The Apostle Peter’s torrent of fury against false teachers reaches its zenith in the text this week. And as difficult as this text gets, we must recognize that its author is the Spirit of God Himself; Peter is just the human instrument. What we are discovering here is the furious love of [...]

From ancient to present, one of the cries of the believer has always been “Oh Lord how long?”  As we look around at our world spinning out of control, it’s very easy for us in our limited understanding to question the timetable upon which God operates.  But to the Lord, a day [...]

Peter begins his discourse on the character of false teachers in 2nd Peter 2.  Disguised as the real deal, the enemy plants his false teachers among God’s people in order to gain acceptance and access. They will use our vocabulary, but not our dictionary. They will use our vernacular, but not our [...]

Peter reminds Christians that the KNOWLEDGE of the truth is no insulation against forgetting, and proceeds to walk us through the critical ministry of REMINDER, that he and his Lord and his apostolic brothers all shared in ministry.  In the context of offering his defense for the divine inspiration of Scripture, Peter [...]

Peter exhorts believers to make certain of their assurance in salvation, that they may live fruitful lives to the glory of God, and enjoy the tremendous benefits that the appropriation of the believer’s security brings. The Apostle tells us that the way that we know we are among the chosen of God, [...]

Perhaps more than in any other area, Christians tend to struggle practically with their sufficiency in Christ.  While we believe God’s grace in Christ is sufficient for salvation, the way we live our lives suggests we’re not really sure God’s grace is sufficient for our problems.  And so we live out much [...]
