Peter tells us to desire the pure milk, nourishing and soothing word of God.
The Word of God is what creates belief in us.
It sustains us.
It motivates us.
What is Jesus' protection like?
Acts shows apostles persecuted.
Peter shows believers facing opposition because of the forgiveness they find in Jesus.
Jesus has prepared an incredible inheritance.
John reminds us of the apostles shortly after the resurrection
Uncertain of the future
What do they learn?
Jesus is able to be with them
No matter where
No matter when
Truly risen from the dead
No bondage to earthly things
Able to accomplish what he desires
What will Jesus do in this church and community?
Create new life
Accomplish his will no matter what Gamaliel might try to do
Who does he use? Us.
these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name
