Obedience and Submission in 1 Peter | Part 7: What does it mean to “submit” to church leaders? (1 Peter 5:1–5)

Part 7 of a series of videos explaining the results of my research as detailed in an academic article: Lionel J. Windsor, “Obedience and Submission in 1 Peter,” The Global Anglican 136/2 (2022): 126–144.
The original article is available at churchsociety.org
Main headings for Part 7:
* What we’ve seen so far in 1 Peter
* They key question: What kind of order and authority is Peter talking about here?
* The sufferings of Christ
* Christ the Shepherd and Overseer
* What authority is not like
* What kind of order and authority is Peter talking about here?
* Therefore: what kind of submission is Peter talking about

Grace in ministry: Avoiding the shipwreck (1 Timothy 1:12–20)

“There was a widespread view expressed by participants that within [the church] culture there was an over-emphasis on sin and an under-emphasis on grace”. The report describes how this grace problem permeated the culture. It affected membership commitment expectations, views of authority, pastoral care, and more. And yet, the thing is: Nobody would deny that this church believed in grace. They preached a conservative evangelical reformed doctrine of grace. But on the ground, in so many instances, grace was not a key feature of this church’s ministry and relationships—with disastrous results. Today I want us to grasp that in Christian ministry, grace can’t only be the content we preach. Grace also must permeate and transform everything about us personally. And I want to give some suggestions for things we can do even now in lockdown, to wage the warfare of grace. (a sermon)
