Life in the Mean-Time
Passage: 1 Peter 4:7–4:11
Sermon Title: Life in the Mean-Time
Text: 1 Peter 4:7-11
The "Big" Story of the Bible"
The problem is not that people don't believe in God and eternity, it's that they don't think enough about God and eternity.
How to live in the mean-time:
1) Be alert/sober so you can pray.
2) Love one another deeply.
Doing the loving thing even when you don't want to.
3) Offer hospitality without complaining.
Hospitality is the overflor of loving deeply.
4) Use your God-given gifts to serve others.
When you live in view of Christ's return, you begin to invest your life for God's Kingdom.
