1 Peter 3:1

1 Peter 3:1

There are a number of passages in the Bible, that give clear instructions about the attitude and behaviour of wives in the home, and their role in the wider fellowship of believers.

Paul reminds women to submit themselves to their own husbands, in the same way that we should willingly yield to the Lord Jesus, Himself. Wives are to submit to their husbands in everything, because it is appropriate for those who belong to the Lord, to do so.

1 Peter 3:3

1 Peter 3:3

In this passage Peter has built up the picture of a believer, whose life is honouring to God. First, we are to grow in grace through the nourishment of the Word of God and as living stones are to be built up into a holy nation, a spiritual house and a holy priesthood that is honouring to God. Our lives are not to mimic the unruly behaviours of evil-doers but to be a light to glorify the Father and to point others to our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 3:21

1 Peter 3:21

This verse has caused much controversy and is used as a proof-text that water “baptism” is necessary for salvation, but that is not what this verse teaches.

Baptismal regeneration is unbiblical, and when this verse is read in its correct context and in conjunction with every other passage on salvation, the “baptism” that saves is clearly Christ’s “baptism unto death”.
