Three Facts True of Every Christian

From Series: Standing Firm in Shaky Times, Volume 1

1 Peter 1:1-2  (ID: 1454)

As Christians we may easily seem to blend in with the rest of the world, but what is it that sets us apart? In this sermon Alistair Begg shares three facts that are true of every Christian: we have been chosen by God, cleansed by Christ, and sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Appreciating these distinguishing attributes should encourage every follower of Christ to understand our ability, through the work of God, to be useful as disciples of Jesus.


1Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, 2according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood:

May grace and peace be multiplied to you.
