We Get Grace, God Gets Glory

1 Peter 5:12

God’s grace turns rebels into citizens, orphans into children, an adulteress into a sinless bride. In this lab, Pastor John reminds us that we receive the grace, he receives the glory.

Principle for Bible Reading

Word Searches

Word searches are important for deep study of the Bible. To conduct one, search for a particular word throughout the Bible (or specific book) to help clarify meaning and make connections to other Scriptures.

A concordance makes these searches easy as they list words and where each is used in the Bible. Beyond this you can usually search Bible apps or online texts for instances of where specific words are found throughout the Bible.

Try conducting a word search of “grace” in 1 Peter.

Study Questions

  1. How would you explain the relationship between grace and obedience?
  2. How does Peter summarize his entire book in 1 Peter 5:12?
  3. How can you obey the commandment to stand firm in the grace of God this week (1 Peter 5:12)?
