February 24, 2013: No Surprises Here!

1 Peter Series message 7

Text: 1 Peter 1:20-21

Every Sunday when I step down from the pulpit I am already thinking about the following week's message. Peter's flow of thought builds with each verse and really prompts me to worship and trust Him more! Just as we were foreknown by God, so Christ was foreknown before the foundation of the world as our Savior. Our catastrophic fall in Adam did not catch God off guard; before the world existed, He was working His plan to redeem for Himself a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. (I Peter 2:9) With special participation from members of our high school group, The Edge, we will see how Christ was specifically called out as our Savior, beginning in Genesis and all throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. All this helps us put our hope in God every day, and in every way. Amen to that!

No Surprises Here!
