Trial: Pt 2- Trial & Jesus

In the second sermon of the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church reminds us that trials can be extraordinarily painful. The answer isn’t positive thinking or trying harder—the answer is to realize that your life is short and eternity is long. God is so much greater than your problems that you must place your hope in him.

We had a great time beginning the sermon series last week and would love for you to come join us Friday, January 30th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the second message in Mars Hill Church’s Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, “Trial and Jesus.” Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available.

Trial: Pt 1- Trial & Sin

In the first sermon of the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church tells us that Peter’s big idea is that Christians are “exiles” on mission for Jesus in a world that is not their home. Consequently, their life is filled with trial. God uses trial for much good in us, for us, and through us.

Come join us Friday, January 23rd, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the first message in Mars Hill Church’s Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series, “Trial and Sin.” Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available.

Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter

For the greater part of 2009, Friday Nights in Ferndale will be following along with Mars Hill Church (MHC) in Seattle as they journey through the first and second letters of Jesus’ apostle Peter. MHC has entitled their series Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter.

From Mars Hill’s introduction to the series:

[Peter] is arguably the easiest person to identify with in the Bible. No one in all of Scripture is as volatile and impulsive as Peter (cf. Matt. 14:28; Mark 14:29; Luke 5:8; John 21:7). On his worst days, he bossed Jesus around and denied even knowing him. On his best days, he wrote two books of the Bible and, according to church history, was crucified upside down at his own request because he did not believe he was worthy of dying as Jesus did.

Peter’s life was filled with trials. After failing miserably with everything from cowardice in the gospels to racism in Acts, by God’s grace he began to grow and change, showing that by God’s grace anyone can become a world-changing servant of Jesus. In Peter, we see a normal disciple. Someone who really loves Jesus. Someone who really sins. Someone with whom God is patient as he grows and matures through his sin to love Jesus more and sin less. Perhaps this is why Jesus appointed him as the leader of the disciples as an example for all Christians. His imperfections are endearing and his progress is encouraging.

Peter’s shadow looms over much of the New Testament. In the four lists of the twelve apostles (Matt. 10:2–4; Mark 3:16–19; Luke 6:13–16; Acts 1:13), Peter is always mentioned first because he is their recognized leader after Jesus. As their leader, Peter also acts as spokesman for the Twelve (Matt. 15:15; 18:21; Mark 1:36–37; 8:29; 9:5; 10:28; 11:21; 14:29ff.; Luke 5:5; 12:41).

 

 

We are really excited about going through these books of the Bible at Friday Nights in Ferndale and hope that you would consider joining us as we seek to follow the God who turned Peter’s life upside down and changed him forever.

We will begin going through this series this Friday, January 23rd. If you’d like to be on our email list to receive weekly (sometimes more) updates, please send an email to fridaynightsinferndale@gmail.com
