Listen to Peter’s encouragement to faithful women: 1 Peter 3:4-5 ESV – “let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands…”
John Piper gave a helpful message on this passage several years ago, sharing that Peter unpacks this idea of submission through God’s redemptive history. Some of his main points are very helpful to note
“Hope in God in the root of everything else for the woman of faith. (1 Peter 3:5)
Their hope sets them apart for God in holiness. (1 Peter 3:5)
Their hope also frees them to be fearless, which makes them inexplicable to the world. (1 Peter 3:6)
Her life overflows with good deeds, which provides a consistent testimony to her hope. (1 Peter 3:6)
Finally, she submits to her husband in reverence to God. (1 Peter 3:5)”
May the Lord encourage your heart as you hope in him. May you be freed to be fearless in Christ, knowing you belong to the Lord and your conduct testifies of God’s work in you and your reverence for him. May you search out God’s ways, and courageously face the world armed with his truth.
