The Conduct of Elect Exiles
God and His Elect Exiles
Scripture/Text: 1 Peter 1:17-21; Pastor Phill Howell preaches this Sunday (March 26, 2023) on 1 Peter 1:17-21. The big idea this week is that as hope produces and empowers holiness, the fear of God protects our hope-filled holiness. Using a plane as an illustration, the destination is holiness, the fuel is hope, and the two wings are the fear of God and the fear of forsaking one's salvation. The text shows us how Christ paid the supreme cost of the flight and how we, even in temporary discomfort, can rest assured that God will take us all the way.
