"Marriage in the Margins - Women" 1 Peter 3:1-6 (Life in the Margins)

After addressing the realms of government and the workplace, Peter turns toward the home in 1 Peter 3 to address the practicalities of the gospel in marriage. This week we will focus on Peter's words to the women in verses 1-6, and next week we will focus on his admonition to the men in verse 7. Remaining consistent in his call for submission, Peter offers very specific insight and instruction for any wife to apply toward her husband. God's heart is revealed and the kingdom is advanced when a woman is marked by respect, true beauty, and fearlessness. This counter-cultural approach is not only effective for the Kingdom, but is precious in the sight of God.
