Pursuing Joy in 2021

Series: Sermons (Non-Series)

As we stand on the threshold of 2021, with perhaps another year of restrictions, isolation, and frustration ahead, what can we do? I want to leverage 2021 and all its trials and troubles toward redemptive ends. Is this possible? How can we handle this year with increasing joy in this coming year? Our answer is found in 1 Peter.  The apostle is writing to a church harassed and threatened. They were facing difficulties, threats to life (2:13), uncertain employment, (2:18), hard marriages (3:1-7), and loss of friends (2:12; 3:16). Peter knows their questions, "How can I stand firm in the face of suffering?  How can I rejoice in times of stress?" Peter calls the church to remember the certainty of God's salvation, consider God's designs in our suffering, and long with joy for the glory of salvation.
