Strong Homes: A Sermon Series on 1 Peter
Each Sunday in January, Dr. Shiell will be preaching through the book of 1 Peter. This fascinating study will address an issue that most Christians share with Peter’s day. How do we live like a Christian when we serve people in homes, offices, and society who are nonbelievers? How do we behave in a Christian manner when those around us live disobediently?
Peter calls us to be a “holy nation,” a “kingdom of priests,” firmly walking on the solid Rock of Jesus Christ. He writes, “Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; for it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
A strong home built on Jesus Christ is marked by the conduct of those in the household, not the location, size, or structure. It’s their way of walking with Jesus that makes all the difference. These are the characteristics of a person who walks in the way of Jesus: hope, obedience, honor, gentleness, reverence, and humility. Each one is part of Peter’s desire to teach us how to “conduct ourselves” as God’s people.
Join us each Sunday as we study these passages together:
- 1/3 Conduct Yourself Hopefully (1 Peter 1:3-16)

- 1/17 Conduct Yourself Honorably (1 Peter 2:11-3:14)
- 1/24 Conduct Yourself Gently and Reverently (1 Peter 3:14-4:11)
- 1/31 Conduct Yourself Humbly (1 Peter 5:1-11)
