Using Freedom for Love

Excellent Behavior Part 1

Ben Foust
1 Peter 2:11-17

What does the way you live your life communicate to the "watching world?" Do your actions refute negative misconceptions about Christians or do they confirm them? Peter gives concrete examples of how to show the world the truth by what you do. By honoring all people, loving the brotherhood, fearing God and honoring the king, we can show Christ to the world.

Truth and Transformation

Jim Leffel
Titus 3:4-8

Titus sums up his argument that once we were sinful and apart from God, but now we have been saved by Grace. From this salvation, believers can go out and radically impart God's love onto others.

New Person, New Mission

Phil Franck
2 Corinthians 5:17-21

This passage highlights all the work God did to make us a new person in Christ. It was His gift to us, not of our own effort. He reconciled us to Him by making Jesus a sin offering in our stead so that we could have right standing with God. And not only does He make us a new person but he gives us a new purpose to share the message of reconciliation with a lost world. He makes us ambassadors so He can make His appeal through us. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n
