"Hope & Encouragement" | Likewise

SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 3:1-7

SHOW NOTES: We invite you to visit and subscribe to our new ministry website – Discover God's Truth

In our current study, Peter writes to encourage believers to show honor and respect to those in authority over us. This includes submitting to the emperor, government officials, and even servants to their masters. Jesus lived this example and submitted to the will of His Heavenly Father. 

“Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands …” (1 Peter 3:1). 

This order was established by our Holy Creator, and there is no sense of inferiority. The practice of submission includes: 1) committing oneself to the Lord; 2) displaying gracious behavior toward others; 3) developing godly character; 4) conducting oneself in a right manner. 

“Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way … so that your prayers may not be hindered” (1 Peter 3:7). 

Peter continues to call believers, in every role or position of life, to surrender to the will of God regarding how we treat one another.
