1 Peter 5
by Audrey Rogers on November 12th, 2020
1 Peter 5:12I have written briefly to you, exhorting and declaring that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it. Sometimes we think grace lets us off the hook. We can just take it easy and coast our way through life. Nothing can be further from the truth. Take another look at verse 12. Grace requires effort. But isn’t that works-based? Not at all. Listen to how Dallas Willard puts it, “Gra...

1 Peter 4:12Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.

1 Peter 3:15Honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.

Peter says, “do it with gentleness and respect.” We are not lookin...

1 Peter 2:17Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor. This was written when Nero was emperor – the man who set Rome on fire and blamed the Christians. The church suffered terribly under the man’s rule and here is Peter exhorting us to honor such a one because that’s just what Christians do. We honor everyone. Not just the ones who look like us, act like us, and believe lik...
1 Peter 1

1 Peter 1:22Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart. You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family. And as the family of God, we’re stuck with one another. Therefore, let’s stick together. If you place your trust in Jesus Christ, we are brothers and sisters. Let’s take care of each other. N...
