Read 1st Peter 2:11-3:7

  1. We all know life isn't fair but as christians we are still called to live holy lives in spite of how we feel about our circumstances. What is one way in which you find yourself focused on your circumstances and not your savior?
  2. Do you have a ruler or governing authority in your life that you struggle with? Does this keep you from living fully for Christ or have you found a way to live for Him in spite of this situation?
  3. We may not think much about masters or slaves in our life but taking a cue from this passage we could see that as our job or someone or something that employs us or has financial control over us. Are you in a situation where you have to bear down under pressure for the sake of your faith in your job?
  4. How does chapter 3 verses 1-7 land with you personally? Does this passage offend you? What is a way that you believe this passage applies in your life?
