The First Epistle of Peter
Hope in a Hostile World
Defining what submission is and is not in Christian marriage.
Christians are called to righteous submission in difficult circumstances as we follow the example of Christ who suffered and died for us.
Peter calls us to live holy lives, even in difficult times and challenges us to submit to government leaders for God’s glory.
God has set a Stone in place – you either reject Him and stumble or receive Him and discover your status and purpose.
Peter encourages Christians living in difficult times to grow spiritually by emphasizing a community of love driven by the Word of God.
Think of all you have in Christ, then be hopeful and holy.
Christians are able to rejoice in trials because they test, focus, and strengthen our faith.
Christians are given a living hope while enduring this hostile world, because God is aggressively at work on their behalf.
