The Christian in the Workplace

1 Peter 2:18-25

Our Mandate for Submission – v.18

  • Submit – to voluntarily place yourself under recognized authority
  • Not only to the good and gentle…
  • …but also to the cruel

Our Motive for Submission – v.19-21

  • It brings favor with God –             1 Corinthians 10:31 – glorify God in all things

    This pleases God…

  • God wants us to maintain a strong and steady witness even in the midst of unjust and cruel treatment

Our Model for Submission – v.21-25

  • Jesus Christ is our example, our model –          Hebrews 4:15 –
  • Jesus was innocent –
  • Jesus did not retaliate –
  • Jesus gave His life for others –
  • We are healed by His wounds            Isaiah 53:4-12
