Hello Trevor and everyone! Warm blessings for 2016, and may this be a year in which God opens our eyes, hearts, minds and souls even more to treasure Christ above all else. I know people have been busy, but I do appreciate this opportunity and Trevor's effort, so that I could study the Word better, in a way with Dr. John Piper, Desiring God folks, and all of you who follow this site. In Christ, j References https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HpV4mEMPRZtvyJg01KsGK7J0YyWYI-eTgIGiJDBR4Rc/edit?ts=56883d97 http://www.desiringgod.org/labs/your-old-passions-war-against-you http://www.desiringgod.org/labs/silence-the-world-with-good-deeds http://www.desiringgod.org/labs/will-others-worship-god-because-of-you Characters Peter Elect exiles Gentiles (Non-Christians) God Peter (Brown rectangle and highlight) Observations Peter calls the recipients his "friends" v.11 Peter urges a certain behaviour among believers v.11 He calls believers foreigners and exiles (the latter same as 1:1) v.11 He urges believers to keep away from fleshly desires v.11 He asks believers to do good among non-believers v.12 He sees the non-believers as doing wrong, maligning v.12 He also sees hope that non-believers may see good deeds and glorify God v.12 Questions/Thoughts Peter has certain thoughts about how to abstain from worldly passions and to glorify God, for these see the google document referred to above Summary Peter urges believers to not fall into sin, and to do good. By doing good, believers have the only viable way in combating slander which will lead ultimately to God receiving the glory. Elect Exiles (green rectangle and highlight) Observations Elect exiles are called friends by Peter v.11 They are foreigners and exiles v.11 They are to abstain from passions of the flesh v.11 They live among unbelievers v.12 They are to do good in response to slander v.12 They slander is that they are mistaken for wrongdoers v.12 They are to keep their conduct among the unbelievers honorable v.12 Questions/Thoughts The word for honourable: καλήν… 1 Peter 2:12 NA28 from biblearc.com Strongs: of uncertain affinity; properly, beautiful, but chiefly (figuratively) good (literally or morally), ie., valuable, or virtuous The process of abstaining from the passions of the flesh is found in the google doc Summary Believers are to not feed the passions of the flesh but are to do good. In this way, they respond to slander and they will participate in a process that may lead to God receiving the glory. Gentiles (Non-Christians) grey rectangle and highlight Observations Unbelievers live among believers v.12 Unbelievers malign believers as wrongdoers v.12 Unbelievers may see the good conduct of believers v.12 When they do, they may glorify God when Jesus appears v.12 Questions/Thoughts How unbelievers move from seeing the good conduct to glorifying God is examined further in the google doc Summary Unbelievers may slander believers, but the answer is that when they see the good deeds of the believers, they may glorify God. God Observations God may be glorified by unbelievers v.12 If they do, they will glorify God when He appears v.12 This appearing is not referring to the second coming of Christ, but to whenever it is that God/Christ visits a person v.12 (see footnote) Questions/Thoughts The idea of when God appears, the visitation, and that this means whenever it is God visits a person and changes a person is discussed further in the google doc. Summary God will be glorified when unbelievers are visited, changed by Him, to see clearly, truly, the good deeds of the believers. Takeaway I am to do good deeds and to abstain from the passions of the flesh. By doing so, I play a small but helpful part, trusting that God can and may open the eyes of unbelievers, leading to them seeing clearly and glorifying God.
