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.

    The day Jesus was crucified, there was 2 thieves also crucified. (Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.) But the one on the right said (Luke 23:And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

    43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    I really love verse 7 because it lets us know that GOD is some-kind-of serious about His marriage covenant and we need to be as well. A man's prayers are literally stopped once he leaves his wife meaning he can no longer ask forgiveness. Something to think about.
