Closing In

- Sermons - Enjoying Life

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on March 20, 2011 by Pastor Ray Bertolet.
Part of the Enjoying Life series.

Have you every watched something getting pulled into a spiral of water going down a drain? You can put something in on the edge only to have is drawn to the center and then down it goes. Peter has been discussing our submission to "authorities" and then
"masters." But now Peter starts to bring it closer to home. Sometimes, it is easier to submit to those that we always know that if we really want to we can walk away from the situation. Not so true when it comes to family. Wives will always have a husband, husbands will always have a wife.

1 Peter 3:1-6 In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, 2 as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior. 3 Your adornment must not be merely external — braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; 4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; 6 just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear. NASU

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
