1 Peter 4:1-11

One thought on “1 Peter 4:1-11”

  1. I did not know that you had this. Now this is what I like.

    1 Peter 4:1-2, agree with you, and it seems that ceasing from sin and suffering in the flesh go hand in hand. Also a thought comes to me about sharing in Christ’s suffering, that we have fellowship there. With this close-knit fellowship sinning obviously should become more difficult.

    4:3, pointing out that their is a different between what the heathen gentiles do and what Christians do.

    4:4, agreed, it also catches my eyes that the unsaved gentiles are “surprised” that you don’t partake with them, like they don’t get it, like they can’t comprehend why you would not join them.

    4:5 He stands ready, are you?

    4:6 preached even to those who are dead, because he contrasted actual living people who need the gospel with the dead I take this to be literal dead people, that the gospel was literally preached to people who had already died, interesting. Just my take.

    4:7 right state of being and prayer go hand in hand

    4:8 love somehow has a beneficial effect on sin, so love then

    4:9 without grumbling!

    4:10 gifts are not for you, they are for others

    4:11 everything because of God
