Peter encourages us to rejoice when we suffer for Christs sake! Thats easier said than done. It is only by the power of the Holy Spirit when our perspective and thinking have been transformed, we can recognize what the Lord is allowing in our earthly lives today for the sake of our heavenly lives tomorrow. This sermon on 1 Peter 4:12-19 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, F...

We must be even more deliberate about living by the Spirit for the time that remains because the end of all things is at hand. Since we cannot specify the precise time of Jesus second coming, we must live each day as if it were our last. We are to obey the Lord in our everyday lives so that even if he were returning tomorrow, we would not have to do anything different today. This sermon on 1 Peter 4:7-11 was preached by Pastor Ph...

When we turn from our wicked ways, when we are baptized as the pledge of a clear conscience and yet suffer in the body, we are encouraged to arm ourselves to have the same attitude as Christ Jesus who also suffered in the body and was yet without sin. As a result, we do not live the rest of our earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. This sermon on 1 Peter 4:1-6 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas ...

Peter also refers to what Jesus did between his death and resurrection to establish his authority and bring us to God. This sermon on 1 Peter 3:17-22 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, January 14, 2024. For a discussion...

Peter describes how we should live in submission even if we suffer for doing good. We are called to repay evil with blessing. And when we repay evil with blessing, we will inherit the blessing of God.

Children of God are called to treat others, especially their spouses with respect, patience, gentleness, and understanding. Winning others to the Lord refers to salvation and ongoing discipleship, spurring one another to run the race to win the prize.

Children of God are called to the bear the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. We are to do this just as slaves of old, in reverent fear of God submitted to their masters, not only to those who were good and considerate, but also to those who were harsh. This sermon on 1 Peter 2:18-25 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, December 10, 2023. For a dis...

Children of God are called to submit to every human authority for the Lords sake, even if those authorities are unjust, cruel, or ungodly. The question is not whether there are or even why there are ungodly rulers. The question is how we should submit to those ungodly rulers. This sermon on 1 Peter 2:13-17 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, December 3, 2023. For a discussion ...

Children of God are called to live such good lives in the world that everyone will see our good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. Its when our identity is firmly established in Christ that we can live good lives as exiles on earth. This sermon on 1 Peter 2:11-12 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, November 26, 2023. For a discussion outline based on this serm...

The world, our flesh, and the devil are all trying to define our identities. We are constantly receiving messages telling us who we should be, what we should think, how we should behave, and how we should value ourselves. It becomes extremely important then to know how God defines our identities. This sermon on 1 Peter 2:4-10 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, November 19,...

Like newborn babies, we are to crave the pure spiritual milk of Gods word so that by knowing and applying the word of God we may grow up in our salvation. We are entirely dependent on God to feed us and nurture us when we are born again, when we are spiritual newborns. Without spiritual milk, we will die. This sermon on 1 Peter 2:1-3 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Sunday, Novem...

Gods call to holiness, to be holy because he is holy, is an invitation to union and fellowship. Peter highlights three action items for living in holiness once we have prepared our minds for action, are sober-minded, and set our hope fully on the grace that will be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ. This sermon on 1 Peter 1:13-25 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fellowship Church, Concord, NC, on Su...

Our salvation, the restoration of our relationship with God by faith through the sacrificial atonement of Jesus Christ, was not only foreknown, it was also foretold. The prophets of old communicated what they received from the Lord even though they could not understand all the details and the timing of what was to come. The prophets spoke for our benefit. This sermon on 1 Peter 1:10-12 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New L...

Peters life demonstrated the proven genuineness of his faith. The end result of that faith was the salvation of his soul. Our salvation begins with God-given new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Our salvation is consummated when we are joined with the Lord for eternity into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This sermon on 1 Peter 1:3-9 was preached by Pastor Phil...

In the opening phrase of his first epistle to the persecuted believers in Asia Minor, Peter identifies himself as an apostle, a messenger, of Jesus Christ, one who was directly chosen and commissioned by Christ to communicate Gods word to the body of Christ, the Church. He goes on to remind the believers that despite their circumstances, grace and peace are theirs in abundance because they have been chosen by God. This sermon on...

Paul challenges the Corinthians to test themselves to see if they are in the faith. This wasnt a test of whether they were saved from their sins. Rather, it was a test of whether their conduct matched their professed faith in Christ. It was a test of whether their faith was accompanied by action. It is a test that remains valid for us today. This sermon on 2 Corinthians 13:1-14 was preached by Pastor Philip Thomas at New Life Fell...

Missed expectations can breed anger, resentment, and depression. We set wrong expectations about others when we think that they should be doing what we want. Instead, we must build others up by setting expectations about them according to Gods purpose and plan for their lives.

There has been much speculation about Pauls thorn in the flesh. Although the Bible is purposely vague about the specific details of whether this tormenting affliction was spiritual, mental, physical, or all three, Paul was given the thorn in the flesh to keep him from becoming conceited so that Gods strength would be apparent in his weaknesses.
