Inexpressible Joy Filled With Glory

Good Friday & Easter, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

On Good Friday, we gathered to remember Jesus’ death on the cross for the forgiveness of sin. Today, on Easter, we gather to rejoice in Jesus’ climactic victory over the grave through his resurrection. To that end, we will sing, recite the Apostles Creed, read Scripture, and consider where deep, solid joy is found from 1 Peter 1:3-9. He is risen!

What Is a Christian?

Good Friday & Easter, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

On Good Friday we remembered Jesus’ substitutionary death on the cross. Today, on Easter, we celebrate his climactic victory over the grave through his resurrection. In light of Jesus’ resurrection, what does it mean for us to be “born again”? In 1 Peter 1:3-5, we consider what this new birth means, why it is necessary for salvation, and what difference it makes in the lives of Jesus’ people.

Reading To Savor, Not Only See

Media, New Year Essentials 2020, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

New Year Essentials 2020

This morning we are beginning a set of annual sermons we refer to as our new year essentials. These sermons address subjects and important themes that we must repeatedly return to for the glory of God and the transformation of our inner and outer lives. These are not, of course, the same sermons. Rather, they are different sermons, taking different angles, on issues we need to come back to again-and-again. We begin our our series by considering the significant difference it makes to read the bible to savor, not only see.

The New Realities of the New Birth

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

1 Peter is an ancient letter written by the Apostle Peter, the beloved disciple of Jesus, between A.D. 62-63 from Rome, to churches spread throughout Asia Minor (modern day Turkey). His aim was to encourage them—and us—to stand firm (1 Pet. 5:12) amidst trials, persecution, and heartache in a world that is not our true home. In our passage today, 1:22-2:3, Peter calls us to live out of the new realities that are forged by the new birth, through faith in Jesus.

Principles for Life in Exile

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Our passage today, 1 Peter 1:13-21, marks an important turning point as Peter shifts from describing what God has done (cf. 1:1-12) to highlighting what we must do in order to stand firm while in exile.

A Story Angels Long to Look Into

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Today we continue our series through 1 Peter. Peter’s letter is theologically weighty, yet simultaneously down-to-earth, and is filled fresh encouragements to wholehearted faithfulness while living in exile. Today, in 1:10-12, he directs our attention to the sweeping cosmic story of God’s unfolding redemption and our place in it. The prophets predicted it. The apostles proclaimed it. The angels long to look into it. And we receive it, by faith.

More Precious Than Gold

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Craig Sturm

1 Peter: Living in Exile

We are at the front end of a new series in 1 Peter. His aim in this letter was to encourage churches throughout Asia—and us—to stand firm (1 Pet. 5:12) amidst trials, persecution, and heartache in a world that is not our true home. Today, in 1:6-9, Peter helps us to see that we can have a increasingly precious faith — not in spite of various trials — but, a faith that actually becomes more precious, more joyful, because of the trials.

Born Again to a Living Hope

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Today we continue our series through 1 Peter. Peter’s letter is theologically weighty, yet simultaneously down-to-earth, and is filled fresh encouragements to wholehearted faithfulness while living in exile. Today, in 1:3-5, Peter bursts into a doxology (a praise of God) and puts his spotlight on God’s merciful, and miraculous, new birth available to all who embrace Jesus by faith.

Elect Exiles

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

By God’s grace, today we begin a new, and important, 20-week series through 1 Peter. This ancient letter was written by the Apostle Peter, between A.D. 62-63 from Rome, to churches spread throughout Asia Minor (modern day Turkey). His aim was to help them—and us—stand firm amidst trials, persecution, heartache in a world that is not our true home. In a word, Peter wants us to know exactly who, and whose, we are. His letter is theologically weighty, yet simultaneously down-to-earth, and is filled fresh encouragements to wholehearted faithfulness while living in exile.
