Submission to Bad Bosses as Gospel Preaching (1 Peter 2:18-25)

Mike Yates, March 19, 2017
Part of the 1 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

I. Submit to bosses—yes, even that boss—because it pleases God (1 Peter 2:18-20).

II. Don’t fear unjust suffering, because Christ has shown us how to endure (v. 21-23).

III. Stand in awe of what Christ has accomplished by His suffering (v. 24-25).

1 Peter 2:18-25

18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. 19 For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. 21 For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. 22 He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. 23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. 25 For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. (ESV)
