Sermon Notes

Introduction/Background: There is no more difficult subject to talk about than submission.
The Bible specifically calls us into accountability with the
practical realities that all of us face as followers of Christ living in
a fallen world. In the realm of submission, Peter identifies this accountability as: submit to
every ordinance of man (1 Peter 2:13), be submissive to your masters (employers) with all fear,
not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh (1 Peter 2:18), wives submit to your
husbands (1 Peter 3:1), husbands, likewise, dwell with understanding and honor our wives, (1
Peter 3:7), young people submit to your elders and all of you to one another clothed with
humility (1 Peter 5:5), and finally, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He
may exalt you in due time, casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:6-7).
