Putting on Jesus1 Peter 3:1-6
Living as Chosen Exiles
September 16, 2018
What does the unbelieving world see when they look at your life?
Peter’s aim within the middle section of 1 Peter is to address this question. So, when Peter gives instructions to wives, calling them to be submissive to their husbands and to embrace a quiet and gentle spirit, his motivation is evangelistic—so that the Gospel they profess may be adorned by the lives they live. Peter’s point is that wives are to adorn the Gospel by putting on Jesus. Wives are to clothe themselves with Christ, embracing His character, spirit, and life so that the Gospel might shine through them.
