1 Peter Lesson 31 - Living the Good Life

1 Peter Lesson 31 - Living the Good Life

Series: 1 Peter
Ref: 1 Peter 3:10–12

Christians have a tendency to shy away from talking about the enjoyment of life on earth. We understand very clearly that we are aliens and strangers in this world because our citizenship is in heaven. The interesting part about this life is that Peter says we are actually supposed to live a good life. This doesn’t necessarily mean that life is meant to be filled with pleasure and comfort, but there are ways to live a good, successful life that honors God and glorifies Christ. 

From the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey

This resource is from the pulpit ministry of Stephen Davey. Stephen is the son of missionary parents and was raised to love Christ and the gospel. In his last year of high school, Stephen committed his life to serve Christ vocationally wherever God chose to assign him in ministry. His first part-time opportunity was as a college student, serving one summer alongside his father, who had recently planted a church in Virginia Beach. As a part-time youth pastor, Stephen saw the Lord impact the lives of students with His timeless word.

Following graduation from Dallas in 1986, Stephen and Marsha moved with their infant twin sons to Cary, North Carolina, to plant The Shepherd's Church. From the very beginning, Stephen preached expository sermons, while Marsha created the nursery and children’s programs. In those early days, word of the new church’s commitment to Bible exposition and the doctrines of grace spread rapidly, and the fellowship was soon overflowing with attendees. In September of 2021, Stephen reached 35 years of pastoring this wonderful ministry and church family.

The full-length sermons posted here are the fruit of Stephen's preaching ministry at The Shepherd's Church.
