1 Peter: Joyfully Suffering LIKE Christ and FOR Christ!

1 Peter is desperately needed by God’s church today! Peter describes the early church in Asia Minor as exiles and sojourners, as those who were seen by the world around them as strange and out of place. Their worship practices and worldview didn’t fit with the culture around them. As a result, they were opposed and persecuted. They were ostracized and reviled. And yet, they were called to suffer joyfully! But how? By realizing that their suffering placed them in the best possible company, that of their Savior Jesus Christ. Like Jesus they were being called to suffer for righteousness’ sake, and like Jesus, suffering would not be the end of their story. They had the promise of future glory. Their future hope and the power of the Holy Spirit is what enabled them to suffer well, and in such a way that they were able to embody the gospel before the watching world. Historically the Lord has used the unique message and way of life of God’s church, their ability to endure suffering with poise and peace, to draw unbelievers to the truth. May our strange allegiance to Christ and His Word be used by God to point unbelievers to the gospel. We desperately need 1 Peter, and the world desperately needs to see a church that faithfully puts its teachings into practice.
