"Submission in the Margins" 1 Peter 2:13-17 (Life in the Margins)

As Peter begins to unpack the specific applications of His word pictures from Ch. 1 and 2, the first place he turns is to the realm of society, government, and culture at large. How does a Christian live for Jesus in the margins among a pagan empire and leadership? His answer, although simple, gets at the heart of greatness in the Kingdom of God. It involves being a servant in attitude and action. This week we will talk about what it looks like to serve with a heart of submission and honor toward those who seem not to deserve it.
