Lent – Suffering Through Submission

March 4, 2018 |

Scripture: 1 Peter 2:13-3:7 | Series:

At the time this text was written, Christians were the scapegoats of Nero, slavery was prevalent, and women were required to follow the religion of their husbands. Peter, while telling Christians to submit to the government, slave owners, and their husbands, was specific in saying this submission was meant to subvert the powers through the glorification of Christ.
