“TESTS, TRIALS AND GENUINE FAITH – 1 PETER”

 

Pastor Jensen is presenting a message series based on the book of 1 Peter at the 8:00 and 10:30 AM Sunday Morning Worship Services.  A key verse in this epistle written by the Apostle Peter states, “These trials will show that your faith is genuine” (1 Peter 1:7 – NLT).  Yes, the book of 1 Peter touches on a variety of trials that Christians face and how these serve as tests to prove that our faith is the real deal.  It is unlikely that we as
believers will encounter fewer trials as the days march on.  Rather, we could very well experience more tests and trials.  Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Peter explains the nature of the trials Christians may endure, how we are to face them and the benefits of coming through them stronger.  We are covering the entire book of 1 Peter in verse-by-verse expository messages.  Below is a list of the topics, message titles and Scripture texts from 1 Peter remaining in this series.
