1 Peter 5 – The Flock of God

We are God's flock, beloved of God, his goal in creation.  The world exists for us.  So value one another, equally, humbly, and faithfully.  (Erik Pattison, 20 January 2019)

1 Peter 4:12–19 – Judgment begins with the household of God

If we are God's family, why do we experience suffering, which Peter calls "judgment", in this life?  (Erik Pattison, 13 January 2019)

2 Corinthians 2:14 – Living with uncertainty

Life is unpredictable, our plans go astray and we do not always manage to reach our goals. Uncertainty is OK if you know you are in Christ's procession  (Erik Pattison, 29 December 2018)

1 Peter 4:7-11 – Above all, love each other deeply

What new reasons does Peter give for this command? More to the point, how do we do it?  What if I don't feel gifted for that?  (Neville Reid, 16 December 2018)

1 Peter 4:1-7 – Live no longer for human desires

For many people around us, desires have the last word in how we live, and define their identity.  Not so for the Christian believer.  (Neville Reid, 9 December 2018)

1 Peter 4:1 – Jesus is done with sin

"He who has suffered is done with sin."  This is only fully true of Jesus.  But what did Jesus ever have to do with sin?  What is sin, anyway?  What does Peter mean by saying that he "is done with sin", and what does it mean for us?  (Erik Pattison, 2 December 2018.)

1 Peter 3:18-22 – Reasons to Persevere

Peter knows that sometimes it is hard to keep going in the Christian life, so he gives us reasons: the encouragements of the great Flood, of baptism, and of the pattern of Christ's life.  (Erik Pattison, 25 November 2018.)
