Andrew Wong

Text: I Peter 1:3-9

#2 in I Peter Series

This week Andrew Wong will continue in the book of 1 Peter. The Apostle Peter writes so that, we would have a clearer vision and appreciation for the salvation towards those foreknown by the Father, ransomed by Christ, and strengthened by the Spirit. But now what Peter would have us see are things that are, as of yet, unseeable. Our current trials are apparent. Our treasures in heaven are transparent. And in between God’s glory can be invisible to us. So, the hope of this week’s sermon is that we would grow in our faith, because “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” That as the mercies of God towards us through Christ are revealed, we would open our eyes to see our treasure, our security, and our praise in the abundant riches of God’s mercy. 1 Peter 1:3-9
