  5. 5. Discussion Points… Week 5 (1 Peter 4) Peter reminds us that even in light of all that God has done for us, it is his will for us, on occasion, to suffer for doing what is right rather than avoiding suffering by doing what is called right by he standard of men. It is the will of God for our lifestyles to be according to His plan rather than the pleasurable schemes of men. • What description is given of “the desire of the Gentiles”? How did the nonbelieving Gentiles respond to the recipients’ salvation? How does this response relate to the recipients’ circumstances? What role will God play in this ? • What instructions did Peter give the recipients in this chapter? How do these instructions relate to their suffering? What will be the end result if they obey these commands? What is to be their response while going through their fiery ordeal? • Can someone suffer and be in the will of God? What should they do when going through a fiery ordeal according to the will of God? How do they do that practically speaking?
  6. 6. Discussion Points… Week 6 (1 Peter 5) The biblical teaching is clear: no one is exempt from attending the schoolhouse of suffering. Suffering is a part of the Christian life. It cannot be avoided. God allows suffering to happen to those who are His. • What have you learned from 1 Peter about the true grace of God? What have you learned about standing firm in the true grace of God? • According to Chapter 5, who suffered? Is anyone exempt from suffering? What will God do for them after they have suffered for a little while? • How has God spoken to you personally through this study? What is the most significant thing you learned? What surprised you the most in this book?
  7. 7. Discussion Points… Week 1 (2 Peter 1-3) Peter wants his readers to remember two things. First, he wants them to “remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets.” Second, he wants them to “remember the commandment of the Lord…spoken by your apostles.” You need to connect to the one thing that is strong enough to keep you from falling. The safety line that will hold you in place is the Word of God—both the old and new testaments. • What is Peter’s purpose in writing this letter? Of what does he want to remind them? Why? • Do we need this reminder today? Why? • According to chapter 3 what should we, as believers, remember? Why?
