2 Peter 1:1-22

June 16, 2024

Pastor Nathan’s message: “Stay on the Jesus Way in spite of what others say because God will rescue and destroy.” Pastor reminds us that we need positive momentum in our Christian life to stay rock solid in our faith. The Scripture warns of voices that might call us off the Jesus way. Nathan teaches that God will destroy (the wicked and unrighteous) and rescue (the righteous). So: 1 – beware of pretenders (lies, sexual sin, greed, arrogance), 2 – repent for salvation (He is giving us time to repent but we don’t know how much time we have left), 3 – stay on the Jesus Way. Listen in this week, as we learn more in 2 Peter in the sermon series: Rock Solid.
