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.

    Reply to Bruce's and other's statements. PLEASE read Romans 6....Many skip this chapter and go straight to Romans 10:9 to prove their 'faith only' doctrine. It is in water baptism Acts 8 Acts 2, Acts 22 and many others that we meet the blood of Jesus Christ that removes our sins, and destroys the old man of sin...After that, we receive the Holy Spirit Acts 2:38 There are no gray areas
