What we do matters. Because we are saved and have faith, we do good works. It is not the other way around. Allen digs into the next verses in 2 Peter 1, addressing how we confirm our calling and live out our faith as effective Christians.
God says he provides all we need to live godly lives, but why is it that we don't always see ourselves lining up with this? Allen discusses this and how we must receive what God offers us. The more we get to know God and center ourselves on Him, his divine power provides us all we need to live a godly life.
In closing the book of 1 Peter, Adam examines what a leader looks like through the lens of Peter. As Christians, we are leaders that are called to humility, leading by example and standing firm in the faith.
Last week we had a conversation about why BVC is here, and this week Allen teaches about what a calling for each individual looks like. How do we pursue what we are made for and how can that fit within what the church is called to do as well? Listen now.
God has given some very specific reasons why the Billings Vineyard Church exists. Allen explains these words the Lord has given us over the 10 years we have existed in Billings, and what it looks like to represent Him well.
