1 Review 1. The evaluation and judgment of humanity begins with God's people - 4:17 2. God's people have their lives saved into glory through difficulties - 4:18 3. Unbelievers don't have the resources believers have a face destruction - 4:18 4. We should, therefore, entrust ourselves to God by doing right - 4:19

2 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:1 "Elders" = those who direct the local church. 1 Tim. 5:17 An office earned by character. 1 Tim. 3:1-7

3 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:1 Peter puts himself on the level of the elders; one of the "guys". He was also a witness to Christ's suffering and one who would share in future glory. He saw the pattern in Christ.

4 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:1 Peter also heard instruction about future glory in the Kingdom! Luke 22:24-29

5 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:2 Elders are to lead the local church. Three important considerations in leading.

6 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5: Don't serve because you have to (1 Tim. 3:1) 2. Don't serve simply for financial gain (1 Cor. 9:6-14; Gal. 6:6-10) 3. Serve as "servant leaders" to lead others to become "servant kings"

7 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:4 Elders receive special reward for serving as He served. Every believer has a chance for a greater share of glory by faithful service.

8 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:5 Those who are younger should also show a servant's attitude toward their elders. In fact, churches are to be characterized by a submissive, servant's heart toward one another.

9 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:2 Peter had heard this discussion often. Matt. 20:20-28

10 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:5 A primary reason this was so critical is that God gives grace to humble people, but opposes those who are proud.

11 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:5 Saving our lives for future glory is aided by other believers with servant's hearts. Grace is necessary to navigate life's difficulties. Humility become a key to survival and success!

12 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:6 Because grace is necessary for us, humility is also a necessary part of our lives. There is a timing to life; to difficulties and to exaltation.

13 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:6-7 Because God has control, during difficult times, roll your concerns unto Him. He not only possesses all power to help, what you go through matters to Him.

14 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:8 We need to be serious and watchful because Satan desires wants to destroy our lives! A roaring lion seeks to scare its prey into mistakes that will end up taking its life.

15 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:8 Peter understood! Luke 22:24-32 Humility, service, reward in the Kingdom, and Satan's desire to take us out. Luke 12: alert and watchful Mark 13: "watch" 3Xs

16 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:8-9 Peter had also learned the answers! The way to resist Satan starts with faith. That is precisely the area of battle. Luke 22:32

17 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:9 Important to remember that you are not alone. It's not foreign to any believer, yet all of us struggle with feeling "singled out" and alone.

18 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:10-11 God has gracious purposes for our lives!

19 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:12 What Peter has taught us is the path of grace and power. We need to cling to his instruction!

20 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:13-14 Mark had been discipled by Peter. It is interesting that Mark's gospel emphasizes Jesus as the Suffering Servant.

21 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:13-14 Not surprisingly, Mark's gospel closes with an emphasis that Peter makes. We are only delivered in life when we are baptized by the Spirit. 1 Peter 3:20 with Mark 16:16

22 Grace Through Serving - 1 Peter 5:13-14 It is in who we are and the power that has been made available to us by His grace that we can save our lives into a great eternity!

23 When we stand in grace through trials, we invest in a better future to reign with and to honor Jesus Christ in a greater way!

24 The salvation of the soul is accomplished through the sufferings of godly believers
