"Marriage in the Margins - Men" 1 Peter 3:7 (Life in the Margins)

After addressing the realms of government and the workplace, Peter turns toward the home in 1 Peter 3 to address the practicalities of the gospel in marriage. This week we will focus on Peter's words to husbands in verse 7 after having addressed the wives in verses 1-6. Although he only spends time on one verse, Peter has so much to say to guide a husband into a life of loving pursuit, honor, service, and sacrificial leadership like Jesus. This kind of cross-shaped marriage creates a home where a wife can flourish and the gospel is put on display.
