Slide1:

8. ‘Be prepared’ 1 Peter 3:13-22

Slide2:

Hebrews 12 v 26 – 29 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens”. The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken – that is created things – so that what cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire”.

Slide3:

1 Peter 3 v 13-16 13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you do suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear what they fear; do not be frightened.” But in your heart set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behaviour in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

Slide4:

1 Peter 3 v 17-21 17 It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body bur made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people were saved, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolises baptism that now saves you also -

Slide5:

1 Peter 3 v 21-22 21 - not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience towards God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand – with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

Acts 24 v 24 – 25 Several days later, Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was a Jewess. He sent for Paul and listened to him as he spoke about faith in Christ Jesus, As Paul discoursed on righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, “That’s enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.”
