This is sermon #10 in our series through First Peter. In this series, we will see that God has a people for His own possession who are called to live holy lives in an unholy age. In this sermon from 1 Peter 3:13–17, Dr. Andrew White examines the Christlike believer’s response to persecution. In this text, Peter urges the ‘elect exiles’ (1:1) to prepare their minds, hearts, and defenses for persecution.
I. Prepare Your Mind (vv. 13–14a)
II. Prepare Your Heart (vv. 14b–15a)
III. Prepare Your Defense (vv. 15b–17)
