Transcript of "Generous living 1pe3_8-16"

  1. 1. THE POWER OF GENEROUS LIVING I PETER 3:8-16
  2. 2. 1 Peter 3:8-16 Living Translation <ul><li>   8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 10 For,        &quot;Whoever among you would love life        and see good days        must keep your tongue from evil        and your lips from deceitful speech. </li></ul>
  3. 3. 1 Peter 3:8-16 Living Translation <ul><li>  11 Turn from evil and do good;        seek peace and pursue it. </li></ul><ul><li>    12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous        and his ears are attentive to their prayer,        but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.“ </li></ul>
  4. 4. I Peter 2:4-11 Living Translation <ul><li>   13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. &quot;Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.&quot; 15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Take Home <ul><li>A life of generosity, compassion, patience and humility stands out like a light in the dark. </li></ul><ul><li>It is the way to real joy for me and generates interest in ‘why’ I live life on this high plain. </li></ul><ul><li>When others ask us for the secret of such lovely living I need to be ready to point to my source…Jesus. </li></ul><ul><li>My answer needs to be clear and spoken with gentleness and respect for the inquirer. </li></ul>

And How About Facing Evil People Bent On Hurting Him…And Those Who Insulted Him? --I Peter 3:9 <ul><li>His loud and direct shots at evil people were always for the sake of God and to protect others. </li></ul><ul><li>What would you expect to come from the lips of one who was unjustly nailed to a cross (“Father, forgive them”?). </li></ul>9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
  12. 13.

James 4:10 </li></ul>10 &quot;Whoever among you would love life and see good days must keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceitful speech. 11 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.&quot;
