Hard Passages – Part 11

We address 3 passages from 1 Peter. 1 Peter 3:3, 4 addresses women on the issue of adornment. It often is turned into a list of rules and regulations on the behavior of women. The message of this passage is respectful and pure conduct of a believing wife married to an unbelieving husband. 1 Peter 3:7 encourages husbands in how to treat their wives. It is not about a command. It is about an internal desire to love your wife. Be considerate; i.e., wisdom and understanding. Get to know your wife from the inside out. Treat her with respect; to honor and esteem your wife. Why? Because husbands and wives are fellow heirs with Christ equally. 1 Peter 3:18-22 is actually a passage of comfort. We can be certain and confident in our life even in times of suffering. This passage may be one of the most confusing in the entire Word of God. Listen as Bob brings insight into it’s meaning.

More Precious Than Gold

We all feel pressure in this life to conform to this world. How do we overcome this pressure. Peter speaks to this in his letter. He tells us about the hope we have in Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 1:6, 7 “In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith–more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire–may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
* David wants to know about the belief that one has to be water baptized to be saved.
* John 6:65 in the English Standard Version says, “And He said, ‘This is why I told you that no once can come to Me unless it is granted by the Father’.”

A Living Hope

What is it like to be a Christian in the world today? Last year almost 100,000 Christians were martyred. In this world today Christians will likely face trials and tribulations because of their faith. Peter addresses this in his letters. “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope…” 1 Peter 1:3
* Aaron calls about being a Christian in the world today and knowing the Gospel is the truth it gives him strength.

Under Pressure

How do we continue to live as believers in Jesus Christ as the world continues to push us the other direction? How do we face adverse circumstances? We have someone who has overcome the world. And he is our peace. We’ve been born again into a living hope.
* James asks is the Catholic religion practicing the same doctrines as the Pharisees and Sadducees of the Old Testament?
* How does sin affect believers’ relationship with Jesus? Does sin “cut us off” from relationship until we confess the sin?

Sins Removed Forever

Basic Gospel is involved in meeting the spiritual needs of the world. Isaiah 6:5 ‘Woe to me!’ I cried. ‘I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.'” Everyone of us have this need. And we get that need met through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. * Brad shares his heart of being a voice.
* Chris wants to know how to “be a voice”.
* Mary Jo wants to know how to balance forgiveness with allowing the offending act to continue. * How do we become sanctified?
