Sermon Notes

Date: 07/17/2022

Preacher: Josh Peglow, pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:3-5


I could not have begun to love thee hadst thou not

first loved me,

or been willing unless thou hadst first made me so.

O that such a crown should fit the head of

such a sinner!

…And so goes —but a stanza of— a rich, Truth-soaked Puritan Prayer.*

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, in his first official sermon as pastor, Josh Peglow takes to the pulpit to illuminate a marvelous hope — a marvelous truth —  we find in scripture. 

It’s a truth and hope that shows us that God is to be blessed for His work in bringing about an unassailable salvation to His heavenly people. 

And the Puritan Prayer? Well, it encapsulates this reality beautifully:

Let thy love draw me nearer to thyself,

wean me from sin, mortify me to this world,

and make me ready for my departure hence.

Secure me by thy grace as I sail across this
