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.)

1 Peter 3:8-22 – How to inherit a blessing

People say Christianity doesn't work.  But Peter is not idealistic; he is giving us a practical way to live.  (Erik Pattison, 18 November 2018. This is a longer recording including Q&A at the end)

1 Peter 3:1-9 – Free submission

We are set free by learning to submit.  Peter's command to wives fits with what he has been saying to everyone about Christian living.  His demand on husbands is not easy either, but it is essential.  (Erik Pattison, 11 November 2018. This recording includes Q&A at the end)

1 Peter 2:24-25 – He carried our sins in his body

How does this connect to the way we live, and why does Peter add "By his stripes you are healed"?  (Neville Reid, 4 November 2018)

1 Peter 2:18–23 – Suffering unfairly

Suffering finds us all, and there is usually no fairness about it.  How does Peter start telling us to respond?  (Neville Reid, 28 October 2018)
