Weekly news from WCUMC Sept 15 2013

  1. 1. Weekly News from WCUMC-9/15/2013 Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world. “Living God’s Grace in an Unbelieving World” A Sermon Series on 1 Peter “Can We Really Live a Holy Life?” 1 Peter 1:13 - 2:10 It is not easy to live in this world and maintain a holy life. But with God … all things are possible!! In 1 Peter 1:13-21, Peter encourages us to live the holy life by realizing: 1. The Glory of God in our lives (1:13) Therefore, once you have your minds ready for action and you are thinking clearly, place your hope completely on the grace that will be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed. 2. The Holiness of God (1:14-15) Don't be conformed to your former desires, those that shaped you when you were ignorant. But, as obedient children, you must be holy in every aspect of your lives, just as the one who called you is holy. 3. The Truth of God’s Word (1:16) It is written, You will be holy, because I am holy…
  2. 2. 4. The Truth of God’s Judgment (1:17) Since you call upon a Father who judges all people according to their actions without favoritism, you should conduct yourselves with reverence during the time of your dwelling in a strange land. 5. The Unconditional Love of God (1:18-21) Live in this way, knowing that you were not liberated by perishable things like silver or gold from the empty lifestyle you inherited from your ancestors. Instead you were liberated by the precious blood of Christ, like that of a flawless, spotless lamb. Christ was chosen before the creation of the world, but was only revealed at the end of time. This was done for you, who through Christ are faithful to the God who raised him from the dead and gave him glory. So now, your faith and hope should rest in God. God’s Holy People Love One Another!! In 1 Peter 1:22 – 2:10, Peter describes Christian Unity: 1. We are Children in the same family… (1:22-2:3) We’ve experienced the same birth (1:23-25) We express the same love (1:22) We enjoy the same spiritual food… God’s Word (2:1-3) 2. We are stones of the same Spiritual Temple (2:4-8) 3. We are priests of the same Spiritual Temple (2:5,9) 4. We are citizens of the same holy nation (2:9-10) _______________________________________________ Questions for Personal or Group Reflection: 1. How does 1 Peter 1:13-21 describe the character and actions of God’s holy people? 2. How does this make them different from most people? 3. In 1 Peter 1:17, how does “God judging our actions” affect your desire and commitment to live the holy life? 4. Why is it important to remember our salvation experience and what it cost Christ? 5. What practical steps can you take to become more holy?
  3. 3. (Read 1 Peter 1:22 – 2:10) 6. Why are members of the church often times not united? 7. What does Peter stress in emphasizing spiritual unity? 8. How might you rid all ill will and deceit out of your life? 9. What steps might you take to strengthen unity with other believers in God’s family?

  8. 8. The train operates on a scenic route from Elbe to Mineral. The ride lasts about 40 minutes each way. We spend approximately 45 minutes at our destination during regular excursions before returning to the depot. At the destination in Mineral, there is a collection of historic logging locomotives, rail cards, and equipment and camp buildings. Allow 2 hours for regular excursions. We will carpool from the church at 9:00 AM, returning about 5:00 PM. Cost: $25 - Male checks payable to the church with OA-Train on the memo line. You can bring a lunch to eat on the train or purchase one there. Please sign up in the foyer as space may be limited. Would you consider making an impact in the life of a student? We are looking for help with the youth ministry to pour the love of Jesus Christ into the lives of students aged 10-16. The latest Barna Study indicates that nearly half (43%) of all Americans who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior do so before the age of 13. Almost two out of three (64%) of born-again Christians made that commitment to Christ before their 18th birthday. You can help in many ways: Chaperon retreats Mentor student leaders Lead weekly Crossfire events - play games, eat together, share the Gospel Pray for our students Teach "tweeners' Sunday School once a month Contact Youth Director Kim Knudsvig for more info. 206-794-6871, or crossfirelife@gmail.com.
