User-submitted Simple Sermon Outlines From First Peter


Well-Known Member
Well, for my latest book, I am creating a book that is entirely a collection of simple sermons based solely on the book of First Peter.
I have attached a sample of outlines based on 1st Peter Chapter One. This module currently contains 19 simple outlines just on the
first Chapter. I figure that there will be at least 60 outlines total, soon as I can get them all put together.

These outlines are short, quick, easy, simple and scriptural. A lot of good material for sermon starters, also for short talks and/or
devotional talks.

Hope you like these. I will post the completed file to the downloads area for user created SS modules. In the meantime, let my know
if you find these simple outlines to be beneficial.

Below you will find the simple outline for 1st Peter 2:1-3. It will be added to the outlines already posted above....

I Peter 2:1-3

Thesis: To emphasize the connection in God's word and spiritual growth.

1. Those to whom Peter initially penned these words had been "born again."
(I Peter 1:23.)
2. Therefore, they are compared to "new bom babes." (I Pet. 2:1,2.)
3. It is unnatural for babies not to grow. Natural for them to grow.
A. Do they grow without food? (Note: "thereby.")
B. Peter's closing admonition involved growth. (2 Pet. 3:18.)

I. Desire Milk of God's Word.
A. Baby has innate desire for physical food.
1. However, Christian must develop that desire. This is Peter's purpose in
this admonition. (I Pet. 2:1,2.)
2. The desire is based upon realized need.
B. Importance of God's word to the Christian.
1. The Christian grows or dies spiritually. (Heb. 5:12-14.)
2. God's word has power to reveal information about salvation. (James 1:22.)
C. Christian needs the sincere milk of the word.
1. Sincere milk is unadulterated word. (Gal. 1:6-9; 2 Pet. 3:16.)
2. One cannot grow spiritually on worldly philosophies; social programs;
vain speculations of pseudo-prophets.

II. Word Teaches That Things Which Impede Growth Must Be Put Off.
A. Some things must be put aside so one can grow.
1. Matters not how much study God's word, no growth until these hindrances are put aside.
2. Common figure in the New Testament: discarding
unfit clothing. (See: Col. 3:8-10; Eph. 4:22-24.)
B. Peter lists some specific sins that must be put off (or, out of one's heart and life.)
1. Malice. (Evil disposition; desire to injure others.)
2. Guile. (Craftiness; lit., to "catch with bait.")
3. Hypocrisy (Deceptive and deceitful actions.)
4. Envy. (A spirit of unhappiness because of good fortune others have.)
5. Evil speaking. (Eph. 4:28; Col. 4:6.)

III. "If Tasted That The Lord Is Gracious." (I Peter 2:3.)
A. Christian character must be built on solid experience.
B. "If," or "since." Taste excites the appetite.
C. The Christian has already had an experimental acquaintance with:
1. Forgiveness of sins. (Acts 2:38.)
2. Possibility of resurrection. (I Cor. 15:22; I Thess. 4:13-18.)
3. Possibility of crown of righteousness. (I Pet. 1:4,5,9.)
4. Possibility of word supplying every spiritual need. (2 Tim. 3:16,17.)

1. A new birth is necessary. (John 3:3-5; I Pet. 1:22-23.)
2. A new life of spiritual growth is also required.
3. Are you stronger now as a Christian than you were five years ago; one year ago? If not, why not?
