Trading the old for the new

1 Peter 2-3

First Peter chapter 2

Put aside the old ways and long to learn the Word of God as a baby longs for milk.

“if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord”


1PE 2:12

Excellent behavior glorifies the Lord and is an example to unbelievers.

So what is this excellent behavior?


In verse 13 and 14 we are told that we are to submit to the authority of our leaders and those in authority. This means obeying the Law, paying our taxes and such.


If we conduct ourselves not in the fleshly lusts but in respect and submission for authority, honoring all people, loving the brotherhood this glorifies God.


If we still do these things and suffer in spite or because of them God is pleased at our faith in Him.
