1st Peter

Live Life for God

1 Peter 4:1-19


How do you bring glory to God in the midst of the life-suffering?

1) Be ready to suffer. (vs. 1)

a. Suffering is a part of following Christ. (Philippians 3:10-11)

 2) Turn from the former life and toward the things of God. (vs. 2)

a. Former Life = Internal pull (woundedness) & external push (performance).

b. Things of God = Internal push (Holy Spirit) & external pull (Christ’s example).

c. Show deep love for one another… serve one another. (vs. 8 & 10)

3) Suffer for the right things. (vs. 15)

a. What kind of suffering do you want to experience, wise or foolish?

4) Keep on doing what is right. (vs. 19)

a. In Christ, suffering leads to hope.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 

- Romans 5:1-5, NIV

Final thought: Trust your lives to God, he will never fail you.
