The Exchange Ticket (1 of 6)
Series: Your Ticket to Life
Introduction: In 2 Peter 1:1-11, Peter reveals the tickets to the life you are called to live. A ticket is a special pass that gives the holder certain special rights and privileges to enter a specific place. The ticket is evidence that the holder has paid a specified cost for using the ticket and is allowed to enter.
