June 23, 2013: Jesus Christ: Our Once-Crucified, Reigning King

1 Peter Series message 21

Text: 1 Peter 3:19-22

Christ left for us the ultimate example of suffering; He suffered unto death as One without sin. In His death, there was victory in that we were brought near to God. Jesus rose from the dead and ascended to God's right hand where He reigns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Even if our path of suffering involves death, that is our gain as we enter immediately into His presence. A subtheme of our message will be baptism, which Peter references.
