Does Your Faith Need an Upgrade?

In his sermon on 2 Peter 1:1-15, Dr. David Rose examines how to cultivate a growing faith that never becomes “obsolete.” He encourages us to evaluate our faith, to see if it lines up with the features described in this passage. Ultimately, faith in Christ’s righteousness provides the security we need to grow and to face even our deepest struggles. In Him, we have “everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3).
