1 Peter 1:3-7 New King James Version
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,
7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,
Sermon Notes: Losing Doesn't Make Me A Loser
The gospel has miraculous power - but not just for the sinner. In fact, more-so for the saint
God is and forever faithful, and we are called into His service to serve faithfully with His Son Jesus.
We continue to have hope in our Lord and Savior.
We are continually fighting a battle to maintain reason in a chaotic world.
Even when we lose focus, there is good news. Every moment of every day, we have an opportunity to find our way back to the Truth by moving forward.
In 1 Peter 1:6-7. Paul says that the things that he lost were nothing - because it enabled him to gain Christ.
So, don’t quit. Don't lose sight of the prize.
Because Losing Doesn't Make You A Loser!
