[esvignore]1 Peter 3:8-12[/esvignore] – Peter gives characteristics of a healthy church that we are to all receive and obey. These are not merely all we are to possess, but Peter singles these out as chief. Indeed if you compiled a list of all the character traits of the church we would find that all of them nicely fall under these five. We will ask of each of the five traits – 1. how does it look, 2. how is it Christ like, and 3. how do we apply it.
