On episode 135 of the Adorned Podcast we discuss 1 Peter 2:11-25. Peter is continuing to explain what it looks like to live a holy life, and in this specific section he is focusing on submission to human authority. We know that this is a difficult and sometimes sensitive topic, but we try to break it down with grace while remembering that Peter’s main goal is to point us to Jesus!
“To be fully free, we must have the desire, the ability, and the opportunity to do what will make us happy forever. No regrets. And only Jesus, the Son of God who died and rose for us, can make that possible.” -John Piper
“Our motivation rests in this: submission to authority is the strongest apologetic against the view that Christians are never up to any good.” -David Helm
