Sermon Notes

 A Lifestyle that Honors God

Every day of our lives the following is involved:

Energy, effort, we need to be alert, practice self-discipline, self-control.

Peter shares some thoughts with us concerning our walk as Christians in 1 Peter 5:5,6

 

1) The Christian walk is one of HUMILITY – V5,6

HUMBLE: having or showing a consciousness of one‘s defects or shortcomings; not proud; not self-assertive; modest

Proverbs 29:23 (Msg)

A humble person can neither be put down nor exalted, he can neither be humiliated nor honored, he remains the same person under all circumstances.

 

2) The Christian walk is a walk free of WORRY – V7

Anxiety, care that brings disruption to the personality and the mind.

The meaning is, that we are to commit all to him. If we experience trials; if we lose our friends, or property; if we feel that we have no strength, and are in danger of being crushed by what is laid upon us, we may go and cast all upon the Lord; that is, we may look to him for grace and strength, and feel assured that he will enable us to sustain us.

1 Peter 5:7                       Psalm 55:22

The "casting" entails an act of my will

 

3) The Christian walk is a BALANCED walk – V8

Be Sober, Self-controlled. Vigilant  + Alert – Why?

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour, consume, swallow, to squander, to waste.

 

The Balanced Life is a Lifestyle that honors God by:

KNOW GOD     KNOW YOURSELF     KNOW YOUR ENEMY

 

THE CHRISTIAN WALK IS:    

   A walk of HUMILITY

     A walk free of WORRY

A BALANCED walk
