Sermons on 1 Peter

Don’t Be Surprised, Suffering Begins with Us

1 Peter 4:12-19 – Peter once again encourages suffering saints to persevere in well doing while suffering, even fiery trials, to expect such testing because it begins with God’s people. Peter is beginning to close out his epistle and is emphasizing again the thoughts of his opening words, but driving it home under the urgency of the impending “end of all things”.…

Characteristics of Faithful Elders

1 Peter 5:1-4 – When one thinks of the biblical qualifications for elders, they usually go to 1 Timothy 3, or Titus 1. Those are indeed important passages on the subject. However, Peter, who spent a lot of time learning from Jesus about being a good shepherd, also tells us much on this topic in the last chapter of his first epistle.…

Urgent! The End of All Things Means…

1 Peter 4:7-11 – Because “the end of all things is at hand”, we are to be self controlled and sober minded, hospitable, and servant hearted. So the first question we need to address is – What is this end of all things? Second, we should get a sense of why it should motivate us to do anything. We will hope to…

Antithetical Thinking, Living, and Dying

1 Peter 4:1-6 – As Peter calls his readers to be different in their thinking and different in their living from the world in which they live, so also are we to be different. Pastor Lee highlights the antithesis of Peter’s instructions and applies it to our lives today. 1 Peter 4:1-6 4:1 Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with…

Be Patient, for the Waters Will Not Prevail

1 Peter 3:18-22 – Peter encourages his readers to be patient during the trials pressing in on them. He gives two reasons, Jesus’ suffering as a model for patience, and the hope of sure deliverance in the Ark of Christ. This passage is one of the most difficult verses in all of the new testament, many errors arise from misunderstanding this text.…

Five Characteristics of the Church

1 Peter 3:8-12 – Peter gives characteristics of a healthy church that we are to all receive and obey. These are not merely all we are to possess, but Peter singles these out as chief. Indeed if you compiled a list of all the character traits of the church we would find that all of them nicely fall under these five. We…

Testifying to the Gospel as a Husband

1 Peter 3:7 – Pastor Lee discusses specific instructions to husbands which are given to help them testify to the power of the Gospel to the world around them. 1 Peter 3:7 7 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life,…

The Godly Wife

1 Peter 3:1-6 – Peter speaks to wives to be subject to their husbands as an expression of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which takes a mighty woman of strength and faith. Contrary to the world’s ways of feminism and women who are bawdy and base, Peter’s words are a call to dignified womanhood. 1 Peter 3:1-6 3:1 Likewise, wives, be subject to…

Be Subject for the Lord’s Sake

1 Peter 2:13-17 – The world says that “subjection” means we lose some of our own liberties as we place ourselves under the direction and rule of another. We think bondage, restriction, a loss of liberty. In this section of the Word, Peter will make it clear for us that it is actually quite the opposite case for the believer. 1 Peter…

Our Call to Endure Suffering

1 Peter 2:18-25 – Believers are sometimes called to endure suffering. God’s Word has much to say about the suffering of the elect, and there is much to find comfort in when difficult times come. While this text is directed at servants, the truths Peter presents are universally applicable to all of God’s children. The goal of Peter in this text, and…
