1 Peter 2:11-12 and 3:13-17 are the texts for this sermon.  This sermon looks at Peter's call to the exiles to be people who live with integrity and by so doing make the gospel attractive to their neighbors.  The sermon contrasts this way of living against what is normally thought of when we say "evangelism."

This sermon comes from John 21 and it uses the Lord's resurrections as a means by which to look at the growth of the disciples from men who often missed the point and doubted to people who were willing to go to the death for Jesus.  The sermon looks at the perplexing conversation between Jesus and Peter when Jesus asks three times if Peter loved him.
