Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture/Principles are Aims for each Division):

1.Wives, submit; Husbands, be considerate (1-7)

Principle:  Submission to your husband is submission to Christ.

2.All: turn from evil, seek peace and pursue it (8-17)

Principle:  Pursuing Christ is pursuing peace.

3.Christ at God’s right hand (18-22)

Principle:  Seeking and finding Christ is entering God’s presence.


Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure showing exactly where you are in Scripture):

Peter writes Christ suffered for sins of wives, husbands, all.


Aim (“To Cause My Audience To…” Know, See, etc.):

TCMATK Scripture reveals the desired attitudes and behaviors of wives, husbands and everyone because

Christ died for all our sins.


Application (not yes or no question.  Meant to bring about life change):

1.Where are you struggling to submit to your husband and how does Christ’s example encourage you to persevere?

2.Jesus prayed for unity in the body in John 17 and we are called to be like-minded in this chapter.  What steps can you take today to advance those Biblical directives?

3.How might your submission to Christ benefit the people in your home, workplace, church and other areas?



Some notes on 1 Peter 3:

This chapter is all about Christ’s influence and authority and the submission of all things to Him.  Verses 1-6 talk about what wives submissive to Christ look like.  Verse 7 reveals the heart of a husband submissive to Christ.  Verses 8-17 speak to everyone about the attitudes and behavior of those submitting to Christ’s authority.  Verses 18-22 remind us of Christ’s sacrifice to save us.  These verses also reveal the importance of baptism and finally, they briefly paint a picture of the reigning Christ we are submitting to.


What is it about you that draws people to Jesus?


What needs to happen (or cease happening) for purity and reverence to be observable behaviors in you?


From where does your beauty come?  From where will it come in 10-20 years?  Where should you be putting forth effort to enhance (increase) your beauty?  What should your beauty treatment look like?


What might be included in a spiritual “spa day”?


What fears are you giving in to (or tempted to give in to) in this area?  How can you give these fears over to God and put your trust in Him?


How will you promote like-mindedness in the church?


In what areas do you need to be more sympathetic?


How do you love your Christian siblings?  In what areas do you need to show love?


What does “compassion” look like in your life?


What does “humility” look like in your life?


How have you repaid (or will you repay) evil with blessing this week?


What are some ways you could’ve handled conversations differently today to keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceitful speech?  What will you do in the future to live by this?


What’s the difference between seeking peace and pursuing peace?  Which are you doing?


How do you respond to undeserved suffering?  How would you like to respond?  How might you get there?


What is the reason for your hope?
