The Apostle Peter is writing to his audience in order to encourage them with the beautiful reality that God has graciously given His children everything required for life and godliness. This giving from God of everything required for our Christian life and godliness is all by His divine power. God is the One who sovereignly provides everything we need to walk through this Christian life well, and that is a gracious gift and encouragement for us.
Is it possible to be a Christian and live a life of sin? Does salvation by grace mean that we can live as we please and still go to heaven? Are good works necessary for final salvation? Many today teach that grace is cheap, that a one-time decision, experience, or prayer, is all that is required for salvation and eternal life. This sermon looks at what the Scriptures say is necessary for assurance of salvation and eternal life.
