1 Peter 2.11-25 Bible Study


This past week reminded me how to be a witness for Christ in my actions, attitudes, and words with everyone I come in contact with outside my home --- in society as a whole.

Peter is writing to Christians and us as we live in an increasinly un-Christian world.  We live in a time where true beliefs do not show in actions, attitudes, or words.  Many people give 'lip service' to God, but then live their life under their own terms - not God's. 

How can I, a believer in Christ, live in the world as a light to Jesus' glory?

First, I need to shadow Jesus.  Learn His ways of dealing with hardships, difficulties, hostility, and submissiveness to those in authority.

Then, I need to model His behavior and reactions in my own life.  Only then, will I be an effective witness to Jesus Christ during my time here on earth.

"Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong,
they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us."

1 Peter 2.12




  1. That is what I strive to a model for Christ. I fail so many times but He is there to always pick me up and dust me off! Praise the Lord. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Lovely post and something I really needed. Thank you!

  5. Thank you for the reminder to follow Christ in everything---including seeking out how He dealt with different situations. I want people to see Him in me, and that won't happen unless His life is being lived out through me!

  6. So true...but, I can't shadow him...he has to do it all for me...maybe one day I'll be his shadow...for has to be all him!

  7. Good thoughts. Those right attitudes are so hard sometimes amidst society's opposing lies. May I have a heart inclined towards him,more and more.
