Loving the Unseen God (This Coming Sunday, Nov. 6, at Redeemer)

This coming Sunday at Redeemer I'm going to preach on 1 Peter 3:8 - "Though you have not seen him, you love him; even though you do not see him now you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy."

I look forward to explaining this to our people.

As you look at this verse, do you have any questions or concerns you feel I should respond to in this sermon? If so, send them to me by email or post it on my Facebook page.  johnpiippo@msn.com
