Scriptures used:

  • 1 Peter 2:18 to 1 Peter 3:6


  • Servants – examples of servant relationships in today’s world:  employee to employer, wives to husbands, children to parents
  • Even to the froward – that is thankworthy
  • Not because your master is good but because the Lord is good and you look to the Lord for the blessing
  • This is how Jesus responded
  • When you are grounded and settled in the Lord and your hope is sound it is no longer about you but about him and your desire is that he might come to know the Lord
  • Examples:  Esther, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, people whose hope was rightly placed
  • It is not promised that the master is going to appreciate your service
  • We don’t realize what it is going to take to reach a person.  It is not about us it is about the Lord
  • This is what we are called to do, even as Christ did.
  • Natural man rejects humility.  To do this we have to choose to humble ourselves
  • First and foremost for any believer is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind and strength.  If our master would have us go against God we do what God wants us to do, but you have to be ready to face the consequences.  God will have your back though.
  • If you disobey your master in obedience to God, God’s blessings will be upon you.  If you are disobedient out of pride, you’ll suffer the consequences
  • Each of us has an individual responsibility for our actions
  • Holocaust – people ask why God allowed it to happen.   Why wouldn’t he?  The Jews were not his, they had rejected Christ and what was written would come upon them came upon them.  Same applies to all: Jews and Gentiles alike
  • Today in America, God is talking but no one is listening.  America is no longer a Godly nation.  God is trying to wake us up, get our attention with the disasters.  Man says it is due to such things as global warming.
  • Nazi Germany – God gave man a free will. When man exercises it God gets blamed for it because he did not take away their free will.  He would be a tyrant if he did.
  • Jesus is the example we are to follow.  He gave us the same spirit that directed his steps.  The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is available to us
  • Guile – to deceive.  Jesus gave no deceit to anyone.
  • He did not threaten
  • When reviled he did not revile back
  • Father forgive them for they know not what they do.  If they knew Christ they would be different
  • Jesus committed himself to his Father – this is what it is all about – looking to God.  You do what God says regardless of what anyone else says or does
  • Jesus himself bore our sins.  He did that for us, we can do this for him.  If you believe him you do it.
  • Jesus already did the work for your healing. You just have to believe it and receive it.
  • Jews had gone astray, were off course.  But now, these Jews who Peter is writing to have returned by Christ Jesus
  • Likewise – in like manner, the same way –  wives submit to your husband (just like servants to masters)
  • Won by the conversation of the wife.  Not telling the husband what to do.  It is a manner of life, a lifestyle, your actions, behavior
  • Subjection – a person who is dedicated  to furthering their husband or master’s business.  Few wives are like this.  It will be noticeable and appreciated (though not necessarily by the husband or master)
  • Abigail’s husband hated her for serving God first.  If Abigail had not served God first she would have suffered the same fate as her husband.
  • An opposite example is Ananias and Sapphira.  Ananias saw how those who sold property and gave the money where lifted up by the people.  He sold a piece of property and gave half of the money as though it was all the money and his wife was in agreement with him and did not serve God.  She suffered the same fate as her husband.
  • Chaste conversation – a life a husband can clearly see is all designed to further him.
  • Esther went before her husband unannounced in obedience to God.  If her husband had decided to put her to death she was prepared for the consequences
  • Woman try to look good to find favor with a man.  Let this not be what we do.  It is guile, deceit
  • What wins a husband is a chaste conversation.
  • The only thing that brings union, perfect peace, love, joy is Christ Jesus – nothing else
  • Meek and quiet spirit – in the sight of God is of great price.  It is an ornament, something beautiful
  • A person who is meek does not always think their thoughts are right
  • Meek – takes little effort to lead.  She will be inclined to do what her husband says vs always having another answer.  Not a yes person, it is a person whose commitment is to follow through on obeying verses 1-3 because she loves God.  She will want to support him in what he is seeking to do.  Not a doormat, a faithful servant of God, a helpmeet to her husband, making him successful
  • Holy woman – they trusted God.  You have to believe God and trust him.  Same call for all
  • Sarah called Abraham lord
  • Not afraid with any amazement – not moved by fear.  You are going to stand and do what is right.
