The Goal of Faith: The Salvation of Our Soul

1 Peter 1:3-12

Full Service

What is the most valuable and essential reality in our world?
Mark 8:36,37

What does the salvation of your soul look like/live like now?

1. Salvation provides the only real reason for joy in this troublesome world (1:3-5).

Praise God for giving new birth to spiritually dead people—“born again.”

  • From dead desperation to living hope
  • An inheritance not available to just anybody
  • Gripped forever in God’s power to save

2. God employs trouble to enrich the salvation faith of those who truly belong to Christ (1:6-9).

Fiery trials are necessary in the process of upgrading the carats of your faith.

  • Love Jesus more
  • Trust Jesus more
  • Enjoy the backfill of future glory
  • Receive the goal of your faith-salvation of your soul

3. This salvation has historic and supernatural credentials (1:10-12).

We live in the most exciting era in all of redemptive history—the church age!

  • The ancients longed to experience this era and prophesied with total precision

  • The angels long to learn and watch the plan of redemption come together.
