“Not Home Yet:  Tasting God’s Goodness”

1 Peter 2:1-3


“So” What?

  • Because you have been born again, love one another continually from a pure heart.
    • Just as God demonstrated His love for us while we were sinners, as followers of Christ, we are to love others.


Take Out The Trash . . .

  • Because you have been born again, live differently than the world. (Colossians 3:1-11)
    • Put away all malice.
    • Put away all deceit.
    • Put away hypocrisy.
    • Put away envy.
    • Put away all slander.


Crave the Word, Taste God’s Goodness . . .

  • Crave the truth of God’s Word. (Colossians 3:12-16)
    • When we consume God’s Word, we taste God’s goodness.

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!  Blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him!”  Psalm 34:8


  • The more I develop a taste for God’s goodness, the more of a distaste I will develop for sin.
    • Your outward conduct is a reflection of your inward cravings.
