For The Lord’s Sake:

Grow Up In Your Salvation

Karl Overbeek

6/27/2010

 

I Peter 1:13-2:3:

13Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. 14As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy."

 17Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. 18For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.

 22Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. 23For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24For,
   "All men are like grass,
      and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
   the grass withers and the flowers fall,
    25but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you.

1 Peter 2

 1Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

For the Lord's Sake:  Grow Up In Your Salvation

-- Karl Overbeek

Justification:  the status of innocence God confers on believers because of Christ's work on the cross

1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, ... 9Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!  (Romans 5:1, 9)

8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.  (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Sanctification:  the end result of our life lived out in Christ

2Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation (1 Peter 2:2)

12Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.  (Philippians 2:12-13)

How do we grow up in our salvation?

1) Prayer

2) Bible Reading

3) Worship

4) Small Group
