Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Message – In the next several weeks, I want to direct our attention to the epistles of Peter. Peter wrote toward the end of his life and as he faced certain death he had two concerns for the Churches. In his first epistle he speaks to believers undergoing persecution and encourages them by setting their eyes on the glories of their eternal reward. In the second epistle his concern is false doctrine which had led, as it always does, led to immorality right within the church itself. For them, Peter spells out a clear warning.
These 2 epistles sum up in large measure the situation being faced by the church today. Christians in many places are suffering as never before, many even unto death. On the other hand the remainder of the church is experiencing a bombardment of corrupt teaching and immoral living that is unprecedented. Peter’s 2 epistles were written for us.
As we walk through these books together, I want to give you a personal invitation to visit us at WWBIonline.org. There is not a better way to prepare yourself for the challenges which the days ahead will most certainly bring than to become a student of the Word of God.
