I Peter Lesson 5: “Living in Relationship”
Motivation: 98% of this lesson preview will be aimed at husbands and wives. Although we have many unmarried adults, widows and widowers in our classes, we all know someone who can use the help. The state of many Christian marriages has strayed far from God’s ideal; divorce statistics are a constant reminder of this problem. (Matt. 24:37-38) Prayerfully prepare this study with an aim to strengthen marriages and to share information that can be used with friends and relatives of class members.
