1 Peter 3, Part 1; Harmony & Victory

1 Peter 3, Part 1; Harmony & Victory

March 31, 2012

Live in Harmony;  1 Peter 3:8-9.

The blessing of Christian Fellowship looks like the following:

God uses the sinful nature of other Christians in the church, so your sinful nature will be exposed and you can repent.

Love Live & See Good Days.  1 Peter 3:10-12.

Quoted from a Psalm of David: 34:1-22

Suffering for Doing Good: “1 Peter 3:13-14”

The Gospel is Offensive. The Good News begins with some bad news.

1. Everyone is guilty of their own sin and will pay with death & hell. God’s wrath remains on them.

2. Jesus Christ is the only way to God.  John 14:6.

3. People will be punished with hell for not believing Jesus.  John 3:18.

Watch out for “Anything but Jesus Christ” OR “Jesus Christ + . . . . . “ .

Always be ready to give an ANSWER.  1 Peter 3:15-15.

Know your motive:  Obey Jesus because He commanded it.

If you are going to suffer, suffer for doing good.  “1 Peter 3:17,18”.

Where did Jesus go when He died on the Cross?  1 Peter 3:19-20.

3 major views.

1. Went to hell to preach to spirits of people who died from the flood.

2. Proclaimed Victory throughout the spiritual realm.

3. “Preached” in a sense through Noah prior to the flood.

I Prefer option 2.

1. Jesus is one in essence with the Godhead.  He is omnipresent.

2. Sheol/Hades & Hell.   Sheol/Hades;  two separated parts,  Paradise & Punishment = hell.

3. The word is Proclaim, not preach.  A victory has been herald!

What about 1 Peter 4:5 (before they died) and Ephs 4:8-9?  (Lower parts of the earth means earth = ground zero).

Peter is giving instructions how Christians are to live.

Beginning in Chapter 2: 11-25,  Live as strangers and here is what it looks like.

1. Submit to authorities

2. In the public eye live as Freemen

3. Slaves submit to masters

Peter continues with the family.  1 Peter 3:1-8

Husband and Wife Relationships.

“In the Same way” what?

Chapter 2:21-25  In the same way “Christ”  Suffering Servant.

Oh oh.  Just a point.  Marriage is not “fair”  It’s not about fair,  it’s about serving.

The word submissive means 1) to arrange under, to subordinate

Purity: 1) exciting reverence, venerable, sacred

The First Marriage was officiated by God and they were both naked.  Genesis 2:22-25

"There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: - [Pro 30:18 NIV] the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden. - [Pro 30:19 NIV]

Not “perpetual victim of that idiot man.“

Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife. - [Pro 21:9 NIV]

Look at the Holy women of the past;  Sarah.  1 Peter 3:5-6

Husbands in the same way. .. .  1 Peter 3: 7-8.

Stay Tuned for next week. Husbands will get theirs and it will be brutal!

2. Glorify God by Obedience.  Faith informs you of what you need to do.

Hear Truth—Believe & Apply Truth = Faith

Faith: Given by Holy Spirit, Romans 12:3, 6.

Faith can increase if you Study Your Bible.  Romans 14:2, 23.

The Goal of Faith = Going to HEAVEN!  WOO HOO!  1 Peter 1:8-9

The Prophets: the Sufferings and Glory of Christ. 1 Peter 10-11.

Isaiah 53 Suffering Servant & Daniel 7:13-14.  Son of Man. Matt 26:64.

THEREFORE DO! 1 Peter 1:13-25.

Prepare you minds for action.

Set Your Hope FULLY

Be HOLY = Set Apart.  Be weird, be strange.

God judges your works against His commands not comparing it to other people.  No Grading on the curve.1 Peter 1:17.

Living Hope, Living Christ = Raised from the Dead.  1 Peter 18-21.
