Modern preachers of the gospel don’t often put an emphasis on suffering, trouble, and loss. But the apostle Peter says suffering is essential to what it means to be a Christian. Hear Pastor Nate Harlan tell us three reasons this is the case.
How does our baptism equip us to face suffering for the sake of Christ? Pastor Nate Harlan works through this controversial passage to show what baptism does in the life of the Church — and what baptism does not do.
The intent of this passage is to encourage and equip Christians as they face hostility from the unbelieving world. But why does Peter bring up Noah? So that Christ can show us that He is the one who rescues us, and the Church is our ark.
How do we show care and concern for the greater body of Christ without compromise? It comes down to this difficult assignment: We should love the Church the same way that Jesus does. Pastor Nate Harlan continues his sermon series from 1 Peter.
The Apostle Peter undeniably connects a husband’s relationship with his wife to his relationship to God. In fact, how husbands treat their wives is a direct reflection of what they really think about God. Pastor Nate Harlan digs into this verse for all of its ramifications.
How you dress is a spiritual exercise. We should not believe that how we dress has nothing to do with our faith for our clothing reveals what is in our heart. In this portion of his first epistle, the Apostle Peter instructs the ladies of the church on how to think about clothing.
Heresies have in one way helped the Church by helping us refine our theology so we have a better understanding who and what Jesus is. In today’s class, Pastor Nate Harlan leads us through a short study on Docetism.
In today’s unbelieving society, it can be tempting for Christians to be embarrassed by the Apostle Peter’s directive for wives to submit to their husbands. But as Pastor Nate Harlan says, these commands for wives are glorious.
