Sharing the Sufferings of Christ

November 14, 2010

Sermon Notes

Date: 11/14/2010

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series: 1 Peter

Key Text: 1 Peter 4:12-14

Description: In these verses Peter gives the climax of his urgent warning and strengthening of the church against the terrible persecution, already under way, but soon to issue in the death of countless numbers of the faithful. Although Peter primarily had in mind the prophetic destruction of Jerusalem, it should never be overlooked that the event itself was a type of the ultimate judgment of the Second Coming, giving all of the apostle’s teaching here a spiritual application for all generations to come.
