Believers bring their old thinking and behavior into their Christian life. Like a child they need to be taught what is right and wrong. Believers are not to fashion themselves like the world. The unsaved are children of disobedience hence they have sinful lifestyles for they have no spiritual understanding. Therefore, believers are to behave differently from the unsaved.

Believers are to be obedient to the Word of God. The idea that a person trusted Christ many years ago does not mean that that person is spiritually mature.

Here Peter changes from giving Bible truths to application. In other words, based on the things just presented certain things are to move people. As animals are expected to move by a goad so are believers expected to move by the “goads” of scripture truths.

Sometime believers do not think that God is caring for them in their daily living. They are worried about life. They do not rejoice in life, rather they are discouraged.

This message looks at a time in the life of Isaac. He lied about his wife, and he was opposed by the Philistines. They stopped his wells and he had to move to find water.

Peter was called by God to be an apostle of Jesus Christ. He was better prepared to serve after being sifted as wheat by the devil. No longer did he care to strive over who of the disciples should be accounted the greatest. Through it all Peter went on to strengthen the brethren because his faith failed not.

This message continues the introduction to 1st Peter. Peter was the impetuous disciple. To be useful to God he had to change.

We can learn much from these famous people in the scriptures. They both knew to sacrifice to God, but they differed in their offering. Abel offered from the flock but Cain from the fruit of the ground. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not accepted. Only a sacrifice of blood could cover their sin. This is still true today. Faith in the shed blood of Jesus for salvation is the only acceptable way to eternal life.

In this message we see the deceptive behavior of King Ahab to save his life in battle. Rather than accept God as the true god he schemed to save his life. But his deceptions failed, and he was fatally wounded by a random arrow shot into the chaos of battle. God is surely in control of this world.

King Jehoshaphat unites with King Ahab against Syria. The 400 prophets of Baal tell them of sure victory but Micaiah declared the word of the Lord that they will lose the battle and King Ahab will die. Thus, Micaiah was the only one who stood for truth and The Majority was Wrong.

This is the sad story of King Ahab who wanted another man’s vineyard. The palace and the rule over 10 tribes was not enough for him. He just had to have that vineyard so much so that the owner was killed so that the king could have his vineyard. Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

The work of God through Elijah is still fresh in the events of Israel. Now God moves this great army against King Ahab and the Northern Kingdom. The purpose is to get Ahab to realize that Jehovah is God! We would think that would have been settled by the fire from heaven but not so. So, God continues his pursuit of Ahab to humble himself to a right relationship with Him.
