Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 3:8


3:8 Finally - This part of the epistle reaches to #1Peter 4:11|. The apostle seems to have added the rest afterwards. Sympathizing - Rejoicing and sorrowing together. Love all believers as brethren. Be pitiful - Toward the afflicted. Be courteous - To all men. Courtesy is such a behaviour toward equals and inferiors as shows respect mixed with love.

    Verse 12 is comforting because it assures us that Jehovah God will protect us. He is our refuge and our strength.

    Always make Jesus Christ the center of your marriage. Give the Lord your Marriage and as the scriptures read "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder. When Husband and Wife quarrel, forgive one another and pursue the peace; so Satan does not come in the Marriage to destroy it. I am living proof it works. I have been married for 49 years and counting.

    1Peter3:1-6; I lo-o-ove these vs. Because - this is the situation I am in. Because I obey the Lord (His Word) He has made a way for me for almost 3 yrs. to serve Him. Before, for 5 yrs., God didn't make a way because I wasn't obeying Him, through His Word. If you are trying, wanting to live for Him - just obey His Word: Jn.14:15. To live for Jesus is so easy, even under persecution.
  • A disciple
    ...wives, be in subjection to your own husbands...husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge... It's not hard to find where in history things really started rushing out of course; and as Christians, we aren't to gauge our values by the world's. It is a real mark of a sincere conversion, that lays aside as worthless and evil, what the world in defiance toward God promotes as morally superior!

    Irene: Did The Lord Say:But seek ye first The Kingdom of God and His Righteous; and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33,or no seeking need. Just love! Changing scripture! Where does that come from? (You know)Do not add or take away? Both has been done. And you say it's "ok"? We who are Washed by The Blood,Preach The Word as Written as much as possible.
