Using a Scripture text from 1 Peter 1:3-5, he made these three major points:
- Verse 3: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Christians have a second birth unto a lively hope.
- Verse 4: To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. Christians have a sure blessing in heaven.
- Verse 5: Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Christians have security based upon Him.
