Committing to Christ the Keeping of Our Soul – 1 Peter 5

In this lesson, Peter is telling a suffering, battle weary people to commit their souls unto Christ in well-doing, as unto a faithful Creator.  Of course, that is easy to say but very hard to accomplish when in the middle of conflict.  Difficulties can easily overwhelm us, and when they do, they can cause us to lose sight of our position in Christ and our purpose.

In this passage, Peter reminds us of five elements God provided.  When heeded, they will get us through life’s trials.  He begins by telling us to,

Commit the keeping of our souls to him in well-doing, as unto a faithful Creator” – 1 Peter 4:19.

But how does this help?  What does this mean?  What does this look like?  What action is Peter calling these saints, and us to do?  This lesson will examine five vital truths revealed in this passage.  We will then examine practical ways to implement them into our life.
