Find Promises in Who God Is
Golden promises shine in the Old and New Testaments and it is the Christian’s inheritance to find, claim, and enjoy them.
The Bible is a book full of promises. We can excavate some of them in places many do not see at first glance. Most identify promises where someone swears that they will do something for someone else. Pastor John finds implicit promises in statements concerning who God is or what he does. When texts describe God’s unchanging character or disposition towards his people, they are promises for us today.
- What does it mean to be “called” by God (1 Peter 5:10)?
- What do you think Peter means when he calls God, “the God of all grace” (1 Peter 5:10)? Does it mean that God is a God of only grace?
- If you are one of his children, take time to thank God that you only receive grace as opposed to wrath.
