FaithFULL - The Finishing Work of Your Faith

Hope in Suffering - Part 4

1 Peter 1:8-12


  • No matter what’s going on - Jesus is still Lord


  • One day every knee will bow & every tongue will confess… (Philippians 2:10-11)


  • Romans 15:13 – God is our source of Hope


  • It’s only when we’re FaithFULL that we can truly experience a rich and rewarding relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ


  • Religion vs. Relationship
  • I have to vs. I want to
  • obligation vs. love


  • You cannot know Jesus without knowing His Word


  • Impossible to please God without faith (Hebrews 11:6)


  • No Faith, No Favor
  • Faith = being sure of what we hope for and do not see (Hebrews 11:1)


  • Faith = the assurance, the confidence, the conviction, the certainty in the one and only true God without actually seeing Him
  • Hebrews 12:2
  • 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

HOW TO BE FaithFULL:


1.    HAVE PERSPECTIVE

  • It’s how we look at things; our frame of reference
  • “wisdom is looking at life from God’s Point of View” – Adrian Rogers
  • John 16:33, 1 Corinthians 4:8-10

2.    EMBRACE PERSEVERANCE

  • Examples - Clement of Rome & Polycarp of Smyrna


3.    TRUST HIS PROMISES  

  • Stand on the Word of God
  • The power to overcome is in His promises
  • God’s delays are not necessarily God’s denials
  • Deuteronomy 7:9, Numbers 23:19, Joshua 21:45
