New Testament

I Peter

1 : live soberly - with blood, not gold, you're redeemed;
2 : Christ chief cornerstone; hold those in pow'r esteemed;
3 : wives, submit to husbands: men, respect your wives;
4 : suff'ring for Christ brings His glory in our lives;
5 : "Feed God's flock," fellow elders are encouraged;
   humility, pray'r, guarding 'gainst the devil urged.

The influence of the apostle Peter on the early church exceeded that of any of the original 12 disciples. His first letter is a general letter of encouragement addressed to believers in Christ living in various Roman provinces in Asia Minor (modern day Turkey) who were suffering persecution for their faith.
