Marks of a Christian

Evening Service
May 7, 2023

The opening chapter of 1 Peter points to three descriptions that mark the Christian life. We love Christ because of who he is, even though we cannot physically see him. We trust Christ because of all that he has done, even though we may not understand how he is working. And, thirdly, we rejoice with an inexpressible joy because of the glorious future he has promised. Colin Smith explains that these marks are true of believers not because of anything we have done, but because Christ has called us to himself through the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Topics: Joy, Trusting God, Security in Christ, Promises of God

1 Peter 1:3-8
