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 […]

1 Peter 1:22-2:3 – Longing for the Word

Are you growing in your faith? Do you care if you’re not? Have you become satisfied with a little bit of Bible knowledge and a little bit of doctrinal understanding? Have you stopped feeding on the spiritual food of God’s grace even though that grace has not yet come anywhere near to finishing its work […]

1 Peter 1:17-21 – What The Precious Blood of Christ Means To Our Holiness

The blood of Christ was shed so that we might have a relationship with God. That relationship is only made possible because Jesus was willing to die for us on the cross. It was not the price of silver and gold that we were saved us, even though those precious metals are costly and worth […]

1 Peter 1:13-16 – Holiness Through The Hope Revealed in Christ

None of us can acquire holiness apart from God. It dwells in God alone. Holiness is only possible as the soul’s possession of God; nay, better still, as God’s possession of the soul. It never can be inherent, or possessed apart from the Divine fullness, any more than a river can flow on if it […]
