Let’s Study 1 Peter!

January 5, 2012 | 1 Comment

Does it seem to you that life is getting tougher? I don’t know what you’re experiencing, but here it seems that everyone I know is in boot camp. We’re in difficult training. Unpleasant training. Painful training. Sometimes seemingly unfair training. I guess the good news is that we know it’s training and we know that since God doesn’t waste anything, He must have a reason to be preparing His people. If that’s true, I want to be ready. I want to cooperate with whatever God is doing. How about you?

Seems to me that 1 Peter is a good book to study these days. And since I’ve been invited to participate in the Kregel Publications blog tour for Sue Edwards’ inductive Bible study, 1 Peter: Finding Encouragement in Troubling Times, I thought we could study it together. Her book is designed for women, but I’m not picky. You guys can join us!

Here’s the plan. Once a week—every Thursday—I’ll post some thoughts on the chapter or section for the day. You can jump in with comments on the same topic, or on a different aspect of the passage. We can dialogue and encourage one another to grow in godliness. I would encourage you to buy the book and follow along, although that isn’t required to participate. I like her format. She breaks the passage into several sections, allowing for a short daily study. She begins with objective questions, and then offers some optional interpretive and deeper study questions. My one criticism is that she’s a bit short on application questions, but we can come up with those.

Who’s in? For next week, study 1 Peter 1:1-12.
