Sermons by Rod Bunton
1 Peter 3:1-6 In Chapter 3, Peter addresses the appropriate behavior of wives and husbands regarding their relationships to each other. Pastor Rod Bunton, providentially preaching on Father’s Day, tackles a subject that is very controversial in today’s culture.
1 Peter 2:22-25 The main theme of Peter’s first epistle is the suffering of Christians during their time on Earth, just as Christ predicted. Pastor Rod Bunton closes out Chapter 2 by reminding us that Christ suffered willingly so that we may be freed from the slavery of sin.
1 Peter 2:18-21 Just like today, people in Peter’s audience did not want to be treated unfairly, especially by those in a position of power over them, and so he addressed the proper Christian response to that circumstance. Pastor Rod Bunton explores that desire to be “autonomous” that tempts us to rebel against those in authority.
1 Peter 2:15-17 Peter encourages his readers to live in a way that puts Christ on display by instructing them to do some inconvenient things. Pastor Rod Bunton continues his series by examining each of these four things that show that we fear God more than we fear people.

1 Peter 2:13-14 Having described the general behavior that Christians should exhibit, Peter starts describing more specific areas to demonstrate our obedience to God. Pastor Rod Bunton tackles the first area — submission to those that God has put in authority over us, even if they are godless.
1 Peter 2:11-12 Peter reminds his readers that, as Christians, we are not like the unbelievers around us; in fact, he calls us “aliens and strangers” in this world. Pastor Rod Bunton reminds us that this means we have an obligation and the power to behave differently.
1 Peter 2:9-10 Peter explains an important concept about who Christians are in the view of God and what that means. Pastor Rod Bunton provides perspective that shows how Peter’s Old Testament terms apply to us in our New Testament covenant.
1 Peter 2:4-8 Peter builds on the metaphor established earlier by Jesus, who called the revelation that He is the living God the stone upon which His church would be built. Pastor Rod Bunton relates this Easter message to Peter’s assertion that this living cornerstone separates the believer from the non-believer.
1 Peter 2:1-3 In Chapter 2, Peter builds on the points made at the end of the previous chapter to deliver an important exhortation. Pastor Rod Bunton explains that first we must shed our “minor” sins so that we can have an insatiable desire for pure spiritual milk.
1 Peter 1:22-25 Peter addresses the condition our hearts before and after we are saved. Pastor Rod Bunton draws from many supporting scriptures to expound on how we show obedience to God by loving one another.
1 Peter 1:17-21 What does it mean to fear God? Although there are many things to fear in our daily lives, fearing God is different. Pastor Rod Bunton teaches from Peter’s exhortation on the importance of fearing God and why he deserves it.
