Live like the end is near

May 24, 2015 Preacher: Scott Hollingshead Series: Hope when life is hard

Topic: Discipleship Scripture: 1 Peter 4:7–4:11

BIG IDEA: The essential elements of a God glorifying life are prayer, love, and service

1. Fact: Jesus is coming back soon
7 The end of all things is at hand-

2. Response: Live every day like He’s coming back
1. Be focused in your PRAYERS- therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the
sake of your prayers
2. Be stretched in your LOVE- 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly-
Why? since love covers a multitude of sins.
9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling-

3. Be good stewards of your SERVICE- As each has received a gift, use it to serve one
another as good stewards of God’s varied grace 11 Whoever speaks as one who
speaks oracles of God; whoever serves as one who serves by the strength that God
supplies

3. Purpose: To glorify God
in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Before you live your life for Jesus, you need to give your life to Jesus.
