Simon Peter - Servant Apostle

Audio Series:

kjv@2Peter:1:1 @ Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ...

What does it mean truly mean to be a "servant and Apostle" of Jesus Christ? The Apostle Peter is perhaps one of the most readily accessible case studies of servitude and apostleship in living motion that we scripturally have. Model Peter in your Christian walk and you will go along way toward unleashing Christ's abundant fruitfulness into your Christian walk. Over the centuries many have certainly tried but, not many have honestly come to grips with what it was that made Peter the end product Peter that finally so greatly served his friend and Savior.

Lets look deeply into what the key fundamentals actually were!

Along with this being a formative audio series, I would also like to present to you my many study resources and notes. Please, like any good Berrean, utilize these many links to formulate your own educated opinions of these life changing doctrinal matters.

Sermon Outline

Simon Peter - Servant/Apostle of Jesus Christ

kjv@2Peter:1:1 @ Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ...

Question: Am I at presently operating in what Peter says will make me abundantly fruitful in the knowledge of Jesus Christ?

Answer: (for so many of us) quite obviously not!
Answer: (for the few of you that are) how much more could you still yet be?

    Keys to immediately take note of:
  1. Jesus Christ is the direct object to be served - Not just any image of Jesus Christ is acceptable for true service.
  2. Not any image of self generates true service - only the image Christ provides.
  3. (obtaining a faith brought about by the righteousness of God and savior)

Application for our immediate purposes:
A. Re-center/target our service on the truest image of Christ.
B. Receive the truer revealed image of our self that Christ produces in our hearts.
C. Serve the person of Jesus Christ from that re-centered and received platform.

Simon Peter: (in terms of image of Christ / image of self / service)
a. before Jesus (what fruit can be expected)
b. during initial discipleship (what fruit can be expected)
c. post crucifixion/resurrection/ascension/indwelling (what fruit can be expected)

Servant => (direct object Christ) = Apostle of Christ => Future Saints
Servant => (?) = Apostle of (?) => ?Self

Application: (goes hand in hand)
A. Re-center our service on the truest image of Christ.
B. Receive the truer revealed image of our self that Christ produces in our hearts.
C. Serve the person of Jesus Christ from that re-centered and received platform.

Key to this new regenerate form of service/apostleship awaits us in our next discussion FaithObtainedThroughRighteousnessGodSavior
