1 Peter 3:13-17

Love to God disposes us meekly to bear injuries from others because it sets us very much above the injuries of men. And it does so in two respects. In the first place, it sets us above the reach of injuries from others because nothing can ever really hurt those that are the true friends […]

John 1:14 – Advent – The Glorious Good News That God Is With Us

It is to be noted that God does in the person of Jesus not merely dwell among men; but He hath joined Himself unto men—the Word not only dwelt in flesh, but “was made flesh.” It is impossible to use words which are exactly accurate to describe the wonderful incarnation of the Son of God […]

Advent 2016 – Ephesians 2:1 – The Purpose for the Incarnation

We are corrupted and need to be restored to the grace of God’s image, and no one can renew but he who created. He alone could recreate all, suffer for all, represent all before the Father. Once transgression had got a head-start, human nature ended up completely corrupted and deprived of the grace which we […]

1 Peter 3:8-12 – The Compassionate Character of the Christian

It would be a marvel to find in any community under heaven a complete embodiment of the injunctions contained in this and the following verses. Yet nothing less than this is the Christian ideal, and it would be well if, without waiting for others, each one would adopt these precepts as the binding rule and regulation […]

1 Peter 3:7 – Husbands Who Love And Honor Their Wives

Living with your wife with understanding first of all involves mutual submission. Prior to commanding wives to submit to their husbands the apostle Paul taught that we are to submit to one another in the fear of the God (Ephesians 5:21). Submission is thus the responsibility of Christian husbands as well as of wives. Though […]

1 Peter 3:1-6 – Adorned With Inner Beauty

We have seen that the inward nature of a woman, and a man for that matter, is most important to God. After all, man looks on the outward appearance but God looks on the heart. The inward beauty, which God gives to a godly woman, is something that cannot and will not fade with time. […]

1 Peter 1:18-25 – Christ’s Suffering For Our Good

The Cross of Christ is the revealed truth of God’s judgment on sin. Never associate the idea of martyrdom with the Cross of Christ. It was the supreme triumph, and it shook the very foundations of hell. There is nothing in time or eternity more absolutely certain and irrefutable than what Jesus Christ accomplished on […]

1 Peter 2:13-17 – Honoring Your Leaders

Today will be an especially good day to read 1 Peter. By professing trust in the God who makes rulers rise and fall, whether we understand his purposes or not, we “honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that […]

1 Peter 2:11-12 – The Impact of Holy Living

We must consider our influence on the world. Our behaviour among the Gentiles must be honest, i.e., fair or beautiful, not only for our sake, but for theirs. Followers of Jesus must never be surprised to find themselves spoken of as evil doers. They called the Master “Beelzebub”; how much more will they malign the […]

1 Peter 2:4-10 – Enjoying God In Light of His Mercies To Us

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.            – 1 Peter 2:9 Let God be your peculiar portion. If you are one of His peculiar people. He […]
