Honor Those in Authority

April 23, 2018

Sermon on 1 Peter 2:11-20, for the 4th Sunday of Easter (1 Yr Lectionary). How does this passage touch on an intersection of the 4th and 8th Commandments (Honor your father and mother & You Shall not bear false witness against your neighbor), as they relate to our Christian duty towards our public leaders? What are some biblical examples of believers honoring and being subject to earthly leaders? What was the ultimate outcome, and why? What does Scripture say about who puts governing authorities in power, and what does Scripture say about their plans vs. God's plans? What did Jesus accomplish by submitting to earthly authorities, and how did He finally defeat evil and injustice, and promise its future end?

Our Shepherd’s Example

April 16, 2018

Sermon on 1 Peter 2:21-25, for the 3rd Sunday of Easter, about how we follow the example of Christ's suffering. What does this mean? What broad categories of suffering does Peter describe? How are we able to grow in and imitate the example of Christ? How do sheep "return" to their shepherd? What kind of care and love does our Good Shepherd supply?
