IX. The Sermon: Plenty to Be Thankful For – Rev. Kyle McClellan, Senior Minister, Grace Presbyterian Church
The Sermon Passage: 1 Peter 1:3-5
The Big Idea: God’s gracious work of salvation flows from His character and work – not ours – and so our proper response is praise.
I. Be thankful for the certain and complete basis of our salvation (v. 3). A. Divine character
B. Divine action
II. Be thankful for God’s maintainace of our inheritance (v. 4). III. Be thankful for God’s garrisoning of us (v. 5).
This is a powerful truth of the word of God and accepting it releases oneself into the hands of the maker to be used more of Him. our God surely deserves all praise and honor.
Amen, friend! Great to hear from you! Yes, our God is mighty!!!
