Intro: Paul told Timothy that in the last days,

"perilous times will come." We feel we are in these

days, so how is the believer to make it through

these last days? Peter gives us some instructions:

I. REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE

A. CHOSEN according to God’s initiative

B. SAVED ("sprinkled by His blood")

C. SANCTIFIED (continual work of the Holy Spirit)

II.REMEMBER WHERE YOU ARE

A.WE RESIDE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY,

WE ARE NOT HOME YET

B.WE ARE DISPERSED...SCATTERED,

WE ARE NOT TOGETHER YET..

C.WE RESIDE AS ALIENS..."NOT FROM HERE"

(in the world, not of the world).

III. REMEMBER WHY YOU’RE HERE

A. THEY WERE SCATTERED DUE TO SIN...BUT

GOD "PLANTED" THEM OUT INTO FOREIGN

LANDS AS A WITNESS...SO THEY COULD

INFLUENCE OTHERS FOR HIM.

B.GOD HAS "SCATTERED US" THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

AND "PLANTED US" IN VARIOUS WORK AND SCHOOL

ENVIRONMENTS SO THAT WE CAN WITNESS BY

EXAMPLE AND BY VERBAL TESTIFYING OF GOD’S

POWER. EACH OF US HAS A PURPOSE FOR BEING

WHERE WE ARE. GOD PLANTED US THERE!!

CONCLUSION:

1. WE CAN ENDURE ANYTHING IF WE REMEMBER

THAT WE ARE CHOSEN BY THE FATHER, SAVED

BY THE BLOOD OF HIS SON JESUS, AND ARE BEING

SANCTIFIED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT DAILY.

2. WE CAN ENDURE ANYTHING IF WE REMEMBER THAT

THIS WORLD IS NOT OUR HOME...WE’RE JUST PASSING

THROUGH.

3. WE CAN ENDURE ANYTHING IF WE GET BUSY FULFILLING

OUR PURPOSE FOR BEING WHERE WE ARE...

"If we will get busy about our purpose,

the last days won’t seem so long or dreary."

INVITATION:

1. ARE YOU SAVED?

2. DO YOUR REALIZE WHO AND WHERE YOU ARE?

3. HAVE YOU SURRENDERED TO GOD’S PURPOSE FOR YOU

BEING ON THIS EARTH?
