The Village Park Podcast features sermons from our church service and livestream.
Defining the Win
In the first week of our new series, Robby and Jonathan discuss the importance of defining the win for our church.
At the end of this life of service, there is a day when we will stand before God and give an account. We will be rewarded for what we have done for Christ. And that reward doesn’t fade away. Peter gives instruction to the church that until that day of eternal hope and glory comes, we are here but we can be hopeful.
Elders Who Lead Well
A shepherd feeds his flock. A shepherd protects his flock. A shepherd oversees his flock. All of these responsibilities are vital for the sheep and a commitment for the shepherd. Peter explains the responsibility of an Elder, from God, to be over the church, to lead the church.
Facing Your Fiery Trial
Are you facing a trial in your life today? Today I want you to understand the truth behind trials in your life. If you’re not facing a trial today, don’t worry, there will be one in your life someday. Most of us just hope to survive our trials; but Peter tells us we can thrive, even in our most difficult trials.
A Life That Pleases God
No one knows for certain when his or her life will end. But there are a few certainties in your life. You were born, and the end will come. What you do in between is what counts. Peter encourages us to live a life that pleases God.
When Hope Seems Lost
Throughout this letter to the believers facing persecution in the Roman empire, Peter has sounded the drum of the reality of suffering, difficulty and challenges. The reality of suffering has been a consistent theme, but so has this call from Peter: hope in Jesus.
