1 Peter: Persecution and Sanctification

All Christians suffer some kind of persecution. Peter has been describing how we are to handle that experience. In this text he has an interesting application: how does suffering persecution help us overcome sin??

1 Peter 4:1-6,5:1,3:14-17,2:20-21,3:9,2:23
2 Timothy 3:12
Acts 5:41

Sermon discussion questions for parents to use with their children:

  • What is the mindset we are to arm ourselves with?

  • What affect does such an arming have on the person in terms of their relationship with sin?

  • Did people party in Peter's day like today?

  • What is the draw?

  • What is the danger?

  • How did suffering persecution help them resist that draw?
