New Life Now
Series: 1 Peter
Speaker: Joshua Holland
I. All who are in Christ escape condemnation. (3:18-22) (review)
- As Noah entered the Ark, so you need to enter Jesus.
- Baptism is a picture of you being "placed into Christ."
- In Christ, you don't fight for victory, you fight from victory.
II. Identify with Christ who suffered for your sin. (v.1-2)
- Dead men don’t sin.
- Arm yourself with this thought: “sin has no hold on me.”
- Are you driven by human desires or led by the will of God?
III. You are a new creation in Christ, now and for eternity. (v.3-6)
- You are not controlled by your past. (cf. Lam. 3:23)
- Don’t be surprised or defensive if the world rejects you.
- For believers, physical death leads to eternity with Jesus.
