Being a Difference Maker

My Pastor’sS Outline from this morning.

Being a Difference Maker
1Peter 2:9; 2 Peter 1:3-4

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; (1 Peter 2:9 NASB)

seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. (2 Peter 1:3, 4 NASB)


A. Plan. 9a, Ephesians 2:10
A chosen people
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10 NASB)

B. Purpose. 9b,; Revelation 1:6
You are royal priests,
and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father-to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:6 NASB)

C. Purity. 9c; 1 Peter 1:16
A holy nation
because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:16 NASB)

D. Privilege. 9d; 1 Cor. 6:19-20
Gods very own possession

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 NASB)

II. WHAT WE HAVE 2 Peter 1:3-4b

A. Potential. For godly living. 3; Phil 4:13

B. Promises. From God. 4a; 2 Cor. 1:20
For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us. (2 Corinthians 1:20 NASB)

C. Partakers of His nature. 4b; Romans 8:17
and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him. (Romans 8:17 NASB)

III. WHY WE’RE HERE 1 Peter 2:9e-f; 2 Peter 1:4c

A. Show our Deliverance 1Peter 2:9f; Colossians 1:13-14

B. Show our Dedication 2 Peter 1:4c; Romans 12:2

C. Show our Design 1Peter 2:9e; Acts 1:8

Until next time,
