PROOF OF FAITH

 

1Peter 1:3-9

 

April 22nd 2018

 

LISTEN TO MESSAGE

 

Intro –  Proof of faith doesn’t come easy. Faith can only be proved through trial. Or as our text says today “by fire”.

 

 

 

I. Do you have faith? 3-5

 

 

A. If you don’t have faith you can’t test it.

 

1. Faith comes by hearing the word. Rom.10:17

 

2. Faith comes by listening to what you hear. Rom.10:16, Mt.7:24

 

3. Listening means doing what is said, responding to what you hear. Ex.7:4,13  Neh.9:16, Ps.81:11, 1Jn.1:9

 

B. Faith is not head knowledge but trust. Is.28:12, Mt.11:28, Mk.1:15, Acts 2:38, 2Tim.2:25

 

 

II. Has your faith been tested? 6-7  2Tim.3:12

 

 

A. Don’t mistake self inflicted pain for a testing. 1Pet.4:15

 

B. Testing comes when you do the right thing and suffer. 1Pet.4:12-14, 19, Rev.6:9, Rev.12:11

 

C. Testing comes for the right purpose. James 1:3-4  2Cor.1:4

 

III. Is your faith revealed? 8-9

 

 

A. You love Someone you do not see.  1Jn.4:10, 19

 

B. You believe Someone you do not see. Jn.20:29

 

C. You trust and rejoice in Someone you do not see.  Ps.62:5-8

 

Con – Are you standing firm and trusting Jesus today. When the going gets tough and Satan attacks, stand firm on the Solid Rock. Eph.6:13
