As you read the Epistles of Peter, you may receive promptings to act. Record these promptings while you are “yet in the Spirit” (D&C 76:80) so you can accurately capture what you are being taught.
1 Peter 1: The trial of our faith precedes salvation—Christ was foreordained to be the Redeemer.
1 Peter 2: Converts are newborn babes in Christ—He is the chief cornerstone—Saints hold a royal priesthood and are a peculiar people—Saints are in subjection to the laws of man.
1 Peter 3: Husbands and wives should honor each other—Saints should live by gospel standards—Christ preached to the spirits in prison.
1 Peter 4: Peter explains why the gospel is preached to the dead—Saints should speak as the oracles of God—The righteous will be tried and tested in all things.
1 Peter 5: The elders are to feed the flock of God—Humility and godly graces lead to perfection.
2 Peter 1: Peter urges the Saints to make their calling and election sure—Prophecy comes by the power of the Holy Ghost.
2 Peter 2: False teachers among the Saints are damned—Lustful Saints will perish in their own corruption.
2 Peter 3: Some in the latter days will doubt the Second Coming—The elements will melt at the coming of the Lord.
