Rock Solid Truths
1 Peter 1:3-12

When ‘stormy weather’ robs us of peace, we need to hang on to Rock Solid Truths so that we will stand firm in our faith. In 1 Peter 1:3-9, Peter reminds us of 3 truths to hold on to and to be encouraged by when storm winds blow.
I. Rock Solid Truth #1 – As Christians, we have something Permanent: our Inheritance.
II. Rock Solid Truth #2 – As Christians, we have someone Powerful: our Guardian.
III. Rock Solid Truth #3 – As Christians, we have something Profitable: our Trials.
IV. Rock Solid Truth #4 – As Christians, we have something Praiseworthy: our Faith.
Conclusion: When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast; When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast; I could never keep my hold through life’s fearful path; for my love is often cold, He must hold me fast. (Ada Habershon)

“Gentle and Lowly:” This book, by Dane Ortlund, is available free of charge to the DCC family through the generosity of the publisher, Crossway books. In explaining his purpose for the book, Ortlund writes, “We are not focusing centrally on what Christ has done. We are considering who he is. The gospel offers us not only legal exoneration—invisibly precious truth!—it also sweeps us into Christ’s very heart.” The adult Bible Study and Prayer gathering will be using this book in the coming year to increase our understanding of Jesus’ heart as a means of fueling our own heartfelt praise and worship. Pick up your copy today!
