1 Peter

Section 20 – 1 Peter 5:12-14

12 With the help of Silas, whom I regard as a faithful brother, I have written to you briefly, encouraging you and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand fast in it.

13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love.

Peace to all of you who are in Christ.


●  (vs 12) Peter had help from Silas, a faithful brother, towrite this letter. Do you have men in your life you would regard as faithful brothers? What causes you to describe them as faithful? How do you become a faithful brother to another brother in Christ? Is accepting help from a brother in Christ important?

●  (vs 12) Peter wrote his letter to encourage the believers and testify to the true grace of God. How did Peter use the letter of 1 Peter to encourage the believers? What did he write that was encouraging? How might you encourage other believers?

●  (vs 12) What is grace? How do we stand fast in it?

●  (vs 13) Peter sends greetings from other believers to his recipients. Who greets the people Peter is writing to? Is greeting other believers in Christ important?

●  (vs 14) How should we be greeting one another? Should we be kissing each other? Why or why not? How do you greet another person with love?

●  (vs 14) Peter closes his letter with a prayer of peace to all who are in Christ. What area of your life do you need the peace of Christ in? Who can you be praying for that needs the peace of Christ?

●  What is something from our passage you are challenged to ponder further this week?____________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________

“God’s grace is nothing less than the free, sovereign, and eternal favor of God toward poor sinners in Christ.”
