Pastor Kip was preaching on what we need to do to make God our God from 1 Peter 1:13-16.
Words to Live by from an Old Fisherman!
2 Keys of The Christian Life:
Live INTENTIONALLY. Make your life count for God. (Don't just go with the world's flow.)
Strive to BE LIKE JESUS and you will PLEASE Jesus!
I. We need to be READY for Godly Action!
Prepare Your Minds for ACTION! (1 Peter 1:13a)
The mind wonders unless we control it.
- "Be Self-controlled" literally means to be sober. The Greek word here means "wine-less." (1 Peter 1:13b)
- Don't let anything or anyone intoxicate you!
- Keep Your Eyes and Heart on Jesus!
- Be disciplined in your faith! Remember we are all accountable to GOD!
- Be CONFORMED to the Christian Life!
- Our words and deeds should point others to Jesus!
- God says, "Be Holy, for I AM Holy!" This is not a suggestion...it is a command.
- We should RESEMBLE our Heavenly Father so much people see Jesus in us!
