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”
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.
1 Peter 3:1-2
wives, be submissive to your own husbands
Citizens should submit to government authority
The universe will submit to Jesus
Unseen spiritual beings submit to Jesus
Christians should submit to their church leaders
Wives should submit to husbands
The church should submit to Jesus
Servants should submit to masters
All Christians should submit to God.
Husbands are to love and honor their wives as Christ loves the Church EPH 5:25-28
1PE 3:8 To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit;
What about fear of suffering?
