Who Do You Say I Am?
Mike Measley • EFBC - Evangelical Free Bible Church • Sermon • • 267 views • 46:58
Conclusion of 'Who Do You Say I AM' Series. We have taken time to look at Who Jesus is. We have taken time to see He is God, come in the flesh to save us from our sin. We have looked at the promises of God for our life and Godliness, and found them pointing to Jesus. We have seen that He is our crucified, buried and resurrected Savior! We have looked at the significance of the resurrection. Now, what are we going to do with all of this? Who Do We say Jesus is? If it really is significant, will we be witnesses?

Peter describes believers in light of Christ, the cornerstone. He describes us as living stones being set next to the cornerstone, forming a Spiritual house, as well as a priesthood of believers. These truths speak to how each believer should be singularly (Christ-Centered) and dependently (Christ-Dependent) serving God. The context that service for God is principally is being transformed into his holy priesthood (1 Peter 2:5) and declaring the riches and mercies that are found in Christ (1 Peter 2:9). The building up that is found in God working through the scriptures to establish us as His Holy, Royal Priesthood, a temple set apart for him. (1 Peter 2:2)
1 Peter: A Living Hope for Holy Living in a Hostile World

Today’s gospel builds upon the message we heard last Sunday about the vine and the branches. This week, we continue to develop the concept of “remaining” in Jesus, but now we replace the vineyard analogy with language that speaks of friendship. As branches on the Vine, we take comfort knowing the inexhaustible…

Creating a Healthy Community
The presence of a toll collector and a Zealot among the Twelve is remarkable, for they represent radical extremes among the Jewish people (a turncoat/traitor/collaborator and a revolutionary/superpatriot/chauvinist); only the transformation by the Spirit (1:8) could change such natural enemies and cause…
