THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PETER

CHAPTER 3


A QUIET SPIRIT
A MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT QUEST

Welcome back to Daily Bread and our study of Peter's first epistle. In this portion of Peter's letter, he addresses a very important subject. For those of you who have a spouse who is unbelieving, you'll want to pay close attention. You may remember that when we closed our study last time, Peter was telling the Jewish believers that they were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd of their souls.

1 Peter 3:4
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

What does it mean to have a meek and quiet spirit? How does a meek and quiet spirit help us?

HUMILITY

Peter continues his letter:


QUIET SPIRIT BLESSING
A MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT PATH

Likewise, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands, because if any are unbelievers, they also, without (belief in) the Word, may be won (saved, converted) by the behavior of the wives, while they (the husbands) see your pure manner of living, in addition to your fear of the Lord. So what Peter is saying here, is that if you're a good example, your husband (or wife) may be saved because of your belief and the way you live your life.

Paul even said, in 1 Corinthians 7:16, you never know, you wives, if you might save your husband, or how do you know, men, whether you might save your wife?

Speaking to the women Peter says ... Don't let your beauty be the outward adorning of plaiting (braiding) the hair, and of wearing jewelry, or of wearing certain clothes, but let it be the hidden person of the heart. Let your beauty be in that which lasts forever, which is the ornament or a meek and quiet spirit, which is of great value in the sight of God. This is how the holy women, who trusted God in the olden days, adorned themselves, by being in subjection to their own husbands, just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord (Genesis 18:12), whose daughters you are, as long as you do good, and are not afraid with any terror.


A QUIET SPIRIT HOPE
A MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT RECIPE

This is a great time to take a look at Isaiah 3:16-26. This is what the Lord said would happen to the women of Zion (the women of God's chosen people), and it describes in detail, how the women of that time dressed because they thought it enhanced their beauty. Now, you may not be Jewish, but as you very well know, now we are all God's people, so knowing that, how do you think He wants His daughters to dress? While we're on the subject, you may want to take a glance over at the Book of Enoch, where he explains how the fallen angels came down from Heaven and taught the women how to shape their eyebrows, paint their faces, wear jewelry, etc. Oh, don't forget the next part, Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways. Now, you may feel it's necessary to use these things because in today's world it's necessary for acceptance, but I ask you, whose acceptance are you looking for, the world's or God's? Whew, a meek and quiet spirit sure looks like a better alternative.

Okay! Got swept away in a little detour there, but now let's get back to Peter's letter. Now, he's addressing the men.

Likewise, you husbands, live with your wives, with intelligence, giving honor to the wife, as the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the Grace of life, so your prayers will not be hindered.


A QUIET SPIRIT TRUTH
A MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT PEACE

Now you just know there are women out there who cringe when they read all this because our world has taught that woman is equal, and being submissive is wrong and bad. Some are saying, Hold on a minute, Peter, you're kidding right? Not so, says Paul. Go back for a moment to 1 Corinthians 12, where you can compare this part of Peter's letter to what Paul said about the body of Christ (speaking of all believers).

1 Corinthians 12:23-26
And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

Think about that for a moment. A heart is a pretty despicable looking organ. If you saw one lying in the street and didn't know what it was, you'd think it was quite gross. But y'know, the heart sure comes in handy when it comes to living and breathing, now doesn't it? Yes, indeed, it's a very beautiful thing!

What does Paul mean when he said "And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it." It means that if any part of you is hurt, ALL of the body is affected. If one of your family members is sick, it affects you and every other member of the family. The body of Christ is created in the same way ... If one is down, it affects all. One is an important as the other despite what administration they have. A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link.


A QUIET SPIRIT INSTRUCTIONS
WHAT IS A MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT

Peter continues ...

Finally, be all of one mind (think alike), having compassion of one another, love as brethren, be kindhearted and courteous, not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing, but contrarily, wishing blessings to each other, knowing that you're called to do that, and that you will also inherit a blessing.

If you want to love life, and see good days, keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking dishonestly. Eschew (avoid) evil, and do good, seek peace and follow it. Because the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers, but the face of the Lord is turned away from them that do evil. And who can harm you if you are followers of what is good?

But if you suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are you, and don't be afraid of their (unbelievers') terror, neither be worried, but honor the Lord in your hearts, and be ready always, to explain with meekness and respect, to every man who asks you a reason for the hope that is within you (to be an heir of eternal life), having confidence that, since they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed, who falsely accuse your clean living in Christ. For it is better, if it's the will of God, that you suffer for well-doing, than for evil-doing. Because Christ also had once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive by the Spirit, by which also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him.

Isn't that just so cool that Jesus preached to those in hell for those 3 days before His resurrection?


A QUIET SPIRIT SUMMARY
A MEEK AND QUIET SPIRIT CONCLUSION

There's a time in our lives when we all have to do some reckoning ... Within ourselves. There's a song that has an interesting thing to ponder at it's beginning. It says, "The greatest single cause of atheism (disbelief in the existence of God) in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That, is what an unbelieving world, simply finds ... Unbelievable."

Are we halfhearted? Do we make excuses to justify our un-Christian behaviors? It's true that the more you know, more is expected of you. Peter began his letter with telling us that we must be as obedient children, and that we need to keep the passion we have alive for Christianity, now he's telling us that along with being enthusiastic about our Faith, we must also have a meek and quiet spirit as well. It's not too complicated, in fact it's really not anything you didn't instinctively know already, but the world sure does a good job at making some things look acceptable, that we really should question ourselves about.

Can't wait until next time, as we continue on with our study of The First Epistle of Peter, right here at Daily Bread. See you soon!
