Topic: Purification
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 1:22  
Description: “Seeing Ye Have Purified Your Souls” is part 17 of Pastor A. W. Tozer’s delightful, 34-part series based upon 1 Peter. The message was preached in Chicago, Illinois on January 17, 1954. Pastor Tozer notes that 1 Peter 1:22 is perfect for a sermon, as it may be conveniently divided into 7 parts: 1) You have purified your souls; 2) By obeying the truth; 3) Through the Spirit; 4) Unto unfeigned love of the brethren; 5) See therefore that ye love one another; 6) Out of a pure heart; 7) Fervently.

 (1 Peter - Part 18): On Laying Aside Certain Things by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Laying Aside
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:1-3,Isaiah 40:6-7  
Description: “On Laying Aside Certain Things” is part 18 of Pastor A. W. Tozer’s delightful, 34-part series based upon Peter’s first epistle. The message was preached in Chicago, Illinois, on January 24, 1954, and it addresses 1 Peter 2:1-3, as well as 1 Peter 1:23-25 (from Isaiah 40:6-7.) Pastor Tozer treats us to several very astute word studies: “wherefore,” “laying aside,” “guile,” “hypocrisies,” “envies,” and “sincere milk.” Without rebirth, the most promising child, the actress in Hollywood, the president in the White House, and the eugenicists’ theoretical “super man,” all exist beneath the same two, dark clouds: mortality and corruption. Men die and then they rot; thank God for the birth that is incorruptible and never dies! Drawing wisely from Socrates, Pastor Tozer also challenges those liberals who ask, instead of turning from wickedness, “What is wickedness?” The length of the recording is 39 minutes and 5 seconds.

 (1 Peter - Part 19): The Chief Cornerstone and Us Cornerstones by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Chief Cornerstone
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:3-5  
Description: Christ’s people are the living stones of God’s temple. On January 31, 1954, A. W. Tozer preached “The Chief Cornerstone and Us Cornerstones,” in Chicago, Illinois. It is the 19th message in a 34-part study of Peter’s first epistle. We already know that the Bible is true; the big question is whether it is true in us. From 1 Peter 2:3-5, Pastor Tozer examines the terms, “tasted,” and “lively stones,” and observes that Christians come out of the world, come away from the old life, come unto Christ, and come together. Drawing nearer to Jesus Christ is what draws Christians nearer to each other. The pastor also warns that we can get the gifts of God and then forget the God that gives. God gives himself in every gift, and it is God himself who matters more than all other gifts. The recording length is 38 minutes and 41 seconds.

 (1 Peter - Part 20): Ye Are A Chosen Generation by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Chosen Generation
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:8-10  
Description: “Ye Are a Chosen Generation” might be A. W. Tozer’s reply to today’s ubiquitous question, “What is God’s purpose for me?” Just as you can tell what a hammer and a saw are for by looking at what they are, you can tell what a man is for by looking at what he is. 1 Peter 2:8-10 lists four things that a Christian is, and from these a Christian may know what he is for. This is number 20 in Pastor Tozer’s series of 34 sermons based upon the first epistle of Peter. The message was delivered on February 14, 1954, from the pulpit of Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, Illinois. It is 23 minutes and 43 seconds in length.

 (1 Peter - Part 21): As Strangers & Pilgrims, Abstain From Fleshly Lusts by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Pilgrims
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:11

Tozer’s excellent 34-part study of Peter’s first epistle explores these questions. The text is 1 Peter 2:11. “As Strangers & Pilgrims, Abstain from Fleshly Lusts” was recorded on February 21, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois, and runs for 18 minutes and 32 seconds.

 (1 Peter - Part 22): Our Walk in the Presence of the Unsaved by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Unsaved
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:12  
Description: 1 Peter 2:12 addresses the question A. W. Tozer declares every earnest Christian should ask: “What should be my attitude toward the gentiles?” As he sheds light on this subject, the pastor utilizes his superb observational skills to explain why the twice born love the presence of Christians, while the once born hate it. He also propounds an important point about what it takes to rightly divide the Word of Truth, and what it doesn’t: “God never tells us anything that will enable us to get along without him.” The 22nd sermon in a series of 34 concerning the first epistle of Peter, “Our Walk in the Presence of the Unsaved” was preached in Chicago, Illinois, on February 28, 1954. Its length is 35 minutes and 14 seconds.

 (1 Peter - Part 23): The Christians Relation to Government by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Government
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:13-16  
Description: True to its title, this 23rd message of A. W. Tozer’s 34-part study on Peter’s first epistle explores “The Christian’s Relation to Government.” The words of 1 Peter 2:13-16 testify that human government is of divine order. However, Dr. Tozer debunks a myth that the Bible endorses the primitive concept of “divine right” rule. He explains, “The father, as the paternal source of the family, and thus as head of the family, and naturally as protector, defender, and bread winner of the family, was the first ruler.” Human government thus developed from the idea of the family. Furthermore, God’s Truth transcends all politics and human government. The pastor concludes with the beautiful words of Hebrews 12:22-24. The message was recorded on March 7, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois, and is 29 minutes and 42 seconds in length.

 (1 Peter - Part 24): Venerate All God's Creation by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Creation
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:17, Psalm 104  
Description: A philosopher searches for truth inside his own head, a scientist searches outside in nature, and neither finds the whole truth, but only shattered fragments. A. W. Tozer intimates, “My friend, the wisest man in the world is the man who knows the most about God.” Only as things are seen from the sanctuary may they truly be seen in focus. Through 1 Peter 2:17 and a loving exegesis of Psalm 104, Pastor Tozer illuminates two of “the five things the Christian should do if he is to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ:” 1) Venerate all things; 2) Honor all men; 3) Love all Christians; 4) Fear God; 5) Honor the authorities. “Venerate All God’s Creation” is the 24th message in a 34-part study of Peter’s first epistle. Recorded on March 14, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois, the sermon is 40 minutes and 34 seconds in length.

 (1 Peter - Part 25): On Wives and Their Place in Family Life by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Family Life
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 3:1-7  
Description: The subject of 1 Peter 3:1-7 is no joking matter. In the home, says Dr. Tozer, “there’s place for recognition of the proper relationships and positions, but there is no place for domination.” “The dominating wife is a product of sin and of unbelief,” the pastor declares, “and has no place whatsoever in the will of God.” As for the husband, there is no biblical example, anywhere, for the brutal lord who rules his home with an iron hand. Pastor Tozer bravely tackles the subject of how a woman should dress, by describing four general traits: clean, neat, modest, and appropriate. “On Wives and Their Place in Family Life” is the 25th message in this 34-part study of Peter’s first epistle. It was preached in Chicago, Illinois on April 4, 1954, and its length is 29 minutes and 58 seconds.

 (1 Peter - Part 26): Be Ye All of One Mind by A.W. Tozer

Topic: One Mind
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 3:8-9  
Description: In the 26th sermon of A. W. Tozer’s superb study on First Peter, we examine with Dr. Tozer what the Holy Spirit means by the unanimity, compassion, pity, and courtesy of which Peter writes in verses 8 and 9 of the 3rd chapter. The pastor approaches these in his characteristically lively style, by telling us what they are not, in order that we may discover what they are. One should never mistake external uniformity for true inward unity, nor confuse empty etiquette with authentic courtesy, nor exalt rigid principles above concern for people and a supreme commitment to Christ the Lord. “Be Ye All of One Mind” was recorded in Chicago, Illinois, on Sunday, April 11, 1954. Its length is 36 minutes and 30 seconds.

 (1 Peter - Part 27): Who is He That Will Harm you? by A.W. Tozer

Topic: Fear
Scripture(s): Romans 8:33-39, 1 Peter 3:13  
Description: A. W. Tozer strikes a blow against fear. With searing eloquence and sober erudition, Dr. Tozer sets forth an extremely encouraging message for all of Christ’s servants and missionaries. He starts by taking us through Romans 8:33-39 to underscore the bold exhortation of 1 Peter 3:13. Nothing can harm a good man! “Nothing can debase his quality, nothing can reduce his dimensions, nothing can prevent the fulfillment of his destiny, nothing can block the accomplishment of his appointed task, and nothing can lower his value before God and the universe!” With this May 16, 1954 sermon, Pastor Tozer marked one year from the beginning of his 34-part series on Peter’s first epistle. “Who is He That Will Harm You?” is the 27th message, preached at Southside Alliance Church in Chicago, Illinois. It is 38 minutes, 43 seconds in length.
