For God’s Sake, Love One Another

1 Peter 3:8-12; 4:7-11
Peter begins to wrap up his instructions to submit to all human institutions for the sake of our witness to the world. Having drawn this out in relation to many relationships common to all, he now turns his focus to one unique to believers – the church. So we will see that it is not only vital how we respond when the world sins against us, but it is perhaps more important how we respond when we sin against each other. The response called for is as radical as it is glorious, impossible but for the character and power of God as he dwells within his redeemed people.
