Right Living For Better Evangelism

DECEMBER 17, 2014   Pastor/Teacher Charles e Whisnant


2A    LIVING AS CITIZENS:  2:13-17

The key verse in this section 2:11-20 is verse 15.
"That with well doing you may put to silence the ignorance's of foolish men."


1A    How to keep those who blast Christianity quite?  How to silence the critics? How to bring men  around to glorify God?

1B    Living the righteousness  of Christ in our living.

2A    The single greatest tool we have in evangelism?  Right living.

3A    The motivation to carry on the Christian life in the middle of a difficult situation, and society?
    1B    Its your duty.  1:1-2:3
    2B    Due to your spiritual benefits you do.  2:4-10
    3B    Its our obligation to live holy before a watching world.

4A    How are we to view ourselves in order to live this way?
    1B    We are stranger in this land.      vs. 11-12
    2B    We are citizens:          vs. 13-17
    3B    We are servants:          vs. 18-20

5A    Peter is calling us to a righteous life in the middle of a society that does not like Christianity
    1B    Your life will either affirm their remarks or put to silence their comments about Christ.

6A    Peter calls us to do this:
    1B    To discipline our inward and private life.
        1C    It begins with integrity.  What is on the inside that counts.

The price of our redemption is to set aside the things of this world. Hebrews 13:14

Our attitude is as such that we think in terms of the temporary. We are so focus on Christ that the attraction of this world do not pull us in.  For we are ready to depart and be with Christ.

We just don’t seem to fit in…we are “aliens and exiles”.  This is going to take discipline from the inside.


Dearly beloved, i beseech 3870 you as strangers3941 and pilgrims 3927 abstain 567 from fleshy lust 1939, which war again the soul"5590

  • Romans 12:1; 2Corinthians 5:20; 6:1; Ephesians 4:1 Philemon 1:9,10)

Pilgrim - one who journeys in foreign lands. "One who comes from a foreign country to dwell by the natives of a city or land, a stranger, sojourner. Since heaven is the home of the Christian, the NT speaks of Abraham and other believers as pilgrims while on earth (Hebrews 11:13; 1Peter 2:11; cf. Genesis 23:4; Psalms 39:12)."

Beloved (27) (agapetos from agape) means dear or very much loved (in context by God their Father!). It is a love called out of one’s heart by preciousness of the object loved. The "Beloved" are those to whom Christ has shown love.

Beseech or Urge (3870) (parakaleo from para = beside + kaleo = to call)

  • means literally to call to one's side and so refers to the act of calling someone to one’s side in order to give aid or help

Aliens (3941) (paroikos from para = beside + oikos = dwelling, home) means literally  to dwell near and thus to have a home alongside of.

  • (1Peter 1:1 1Pe 1:17; Genesis 23:4; 47:9; Leviticus 25:23; 1Chronicles 29:15; Psalms 39:12; 119:19,54; Hebrews 11:13

Strangers (3927) (parepidemois from para = near by and here implies a transitory sense describing one who passes near but on to something beyond + epidemos = stranger, epidemos from epi = in or among + demos = a people) literally means a stranger alongside and so a stranger or sojourner

Abstain (568) (apechomai or apecho from apó = away from - the idea of putting some distance between, marker of dissociation, implying a rupture from a former association + écho = have) means to be away or be at a distance
Fleshly (4559) (Sarkikos from sarx = flesh)  refers to that which pertains to the flesh, in context the depraved nature inherited from Adam. It means having the nature of flesh, i.e., sensual, controlled by animal appetites (inherited from Adam), instead of by the Spirit of God.

Lusts (1939) (epithumia from epi = at, toward {the preposition "epi-" in the compound is directive conveying the picture of "having one’s passion toward"} + thumos = passion. Root verb epithumeo = set heart upon)  is a neutral term denoting the presence of strong desires or impulses, longings or passionate craving (whether it is good or evil is determined by the context) directed toward an object

Wage war (4754) (strateuomai from strategos = army, stratos = an encamped army) means literally to perform military service, serve as a soldier in the army, go to fight,  carry on a military campaign, make a military expedition, lead soldiers to war or to battle.  (Romans 7:23; 8:13; Galatians 5:17,24; 1Timothy 6:9,10; James 4:1)

Against (2596) (kata) generally describes a downward movement and when used as a hostile sense as in this verse conveys the idea of "against".

Soul (5590) (psuche or psyche from psucho = to breathe, blow, English = psychology, "study of the soul")


Charles e Whisnant, Quotes


Far too many who want to go to Heaven, want to get there doing as little as they can, they don't want to give any effect, they want to obey as little as possible, they want to live their lives as their way. They might have a little trouble getting there!]


A person becomes a believer, is born again, becomes a Christian when the Holy Spirit brings into their mind their need of forgiveness and their need for a Savior, Jesus Christ.

We have been taught to just believe, its all that necessary. I believe the Bible that I hold in my hand is rather close to the original. So how do we know that? listen and learn. Its true we do.

Hackers are hacking my sermons and putting them out for the world to see! Wish!

What is to be our reaction to the reaction of the world as we see on display today around the United State and the World? Are we going to have to adapt to what we see every day in the world around us? Are we going to have to change our way of thinking about how the worldview is been presented to us?

We have certainly over the years been asked what we thinking about a number of issues, "Can we drink beer, or Jack Daniel?" "Can we have sex before marriage?" "Can we smoke weed, etc??" Can we be a Democrat and still be a Christians? Can a Christian believer join the Freemason or the Lions, Beavers, or any club?" "Can a Christian read other translations other then the KJV? " I

First Peter 2 have been my topic of study for over a year in our church. There seem to be the idea of holiness that is to illustrated our lives before God and man. When ask such questions has this one, I usually like to give them my sermon notes on the subject of holiness,

You have been called to participation. God invites men and women to participate in fellowship with Him and in His salvation. God's saving initiative, the effectual call of God. God called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. First Peter 1:1, 15, 2:21 and 3:9 and 5;10 From the sermon tonight. From Darkness To Light. Sin to Salvation.


First Peter 2:11 will be our text Wednesday at ROJBC

1Peter 2:11 Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul. (nasv)

Dearly beloved, i beseech (3870) you as strangers(3941) and pilgrims (3927) abstain (567) from fleshy lust (1939), which war again the soul"(5590) (Strong's number) God has never called the Believer to Fit In. But to Live And Speak To The Glory of The Lord.D L Moody captured the essence of Peter's exhortation when he exclaimed..."I have more trouble with D. L. Moody than with any man I know."
