Surviving Satan’s Schemes

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 5:8-14

Struggles do something powerful to people. They narrow their vision. Struggles make it difficult to see what is happening in our hearts. Yet, if we don’t see then Satan can trick us into falling.

Raising God Up

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 5:5-7

When it comes to humility, we tend to think of it as putting ourselves down. It is time to see it as raising God up!

Being the Shepherd God Wants

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 5:1-4

If the church is going to follow Jesus’ teaching on the heart, it must start with the example of its leader. Let us encourage our pastor’s heart.

How God Makes Us Complete

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 4:12-19

We must trust God. What about when the direction He takes us causes us pain? God is working to make us complete. Are you willing to struggle to be complete?

Responding to the End Times

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 4:7-11

Many people get caught up in the theories of the end times. God wants us to be ready for it. It isn’t in head knowledge that we simply get ready. It is in life application.

Applying Righteousness

Scripture: 1 Peter 4:1-6

When we apply the principles of righteous living we will stand out.

Looking Again to Christ


Scripture(s): 1 Peter 3:18-22

Struggles aren’t just hard because they hurt. They also hurt because they challenge our hope. The promise of Jesus is that He will walk with us through our struggles.

Preparing for Persecution

Scriptur1peter5-5-7-humility.mp3″][/audio]e(s): 1 Peter 3:13-17

Persecution is much like anything that happens only once in a while. We fear it more because of its unusual nature rather than the actual experience itself. We struggle with the emotions rather than the facts. The only antidote to that is to become more familiar with it.

Being God’s Man

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 3:7-12

When we interact with one another, we are faced with a difficult choice. Do I react to the people in my life, or do I choose to consistently act as God has led me? For God’s man, this choice is paramount.

Submission to the Inner Life

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 3 1-6

Perhaps the thing that confuses us about God’s teaching regarding women is that we are still doing exactly what God warns us against. Are we still looking outwardly rather than inwardly? Are we still focused on how a woman looks rather than what is in her heart?

A Practical Grace

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:18-25

When push comes to shove, what will keep us giving our best when the going gets bad? Is it enough for you to work hard because your family needs you? Will that give your life meaning and purpose? Do we realize what will give us meaning and purpose when the work is hard or unyielding?

A Citizen of Heaven is a Good Citizen of Earth

As we live as citizens of both Heaven and America, it is sometimes difficult to separate the two. No matter how patriotic we are, we must understand that living by the morals of this country won’t always make us good citizens. We must always live by Heaven’s rules.

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:12-17

Choosing to Be Peculiar

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:1-10

Why should we be different? Why should we live differently? Why should we make different choices? Ultimately, the question is why should I follow Jesus?

Free to Love

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 1:22-25

There are many things in our flesh that we have reason to fear. Ultimately, fear enslaves us. God has a good word about our freedom to love.

Personal Value

Scripture(s): 1 Peter 1:13-21

How we treat something shows its value to us. Salvation is the same way. Its value is shown by how we act toward it. How has God encouraged us to act?

The Value of our Salvation

Faith is more than just a way to Heaven. It is also a statement about all of what God has taught us. Faith says that God’s way is always worth it.

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:10-12

Responding to Our Struggles

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:6-9

Is there anything good we can do while we struggle or suffer? Do we just endure it? Or is there more? Is there a higher calling?

Praising God in Salvation

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:3-5

We shouldn’t need to be given reasons to praise God, yet He gives them to us. God has worked in a mighty way to save us. Let us praise Him!

Our Triune God Saves

Scripture: 1 Peter 1:1-2

The triune nature of God is not just an old dusty doctrine. It is how God reveals Himself consistently through Scripture. There is no clearer expression of this than in salvation.
