An Inspiring View
1 Peter 3: 13-22
Traveling roadways and passages in some parts of our world can be intimidating. This experience of such travel, of life, is similar to that of our life as Christians. Discipleship is difficult.
Like the churches that Peter wrote to, we, as Christians, struggle with how faith interacts with the world. Peter offers a vision of God's glorious work in Christ that helps us endure.
1. Satan would tempt us to believe that we are doing something wrong, to believe that Christian life should be easy and, if it is not, to believe that we should just be quiet about our faith. Peter, however, offers us a different vision. Be prepared to speak "the hope that is in you." (3:15) Peter encourages us to look to Christ.
God's work in the past and God's work in the future help us understand our present moment. The work of Christ in the past and the promises of Christ for the future help Christians make sense of what they are doing right now. (1 Peter 3:18)
2. Peter wants to be remembered not for what he said and did but for what he was: a witness of the sufferings of Jesus Christ. Peter reminds Christians who are suffering in their discipleship that God works salvation through suffering. (3:18)
Without the sufferings of Christ, we would remain in our sins, separated from God by what we say, think, and do. But because of the sufferings of Christ, because of His death upon the cross, the wrath of God is appeased. He died that we might be saved, and He rose from the dead that we might know that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
3. Jesus is the Victor, having triumphed over all evil in His death on the cross and His resurrection from the grave. All suffering that comes to us has already been conquered by Him.
Peter relates to the churches how Jesus not only suffered for their sin but how He rose from the dead in victory over all evil. When suffering enters our lives, when difficulties endanger our discipleship, Peter encourages us to see this larger vision of our risen and ruling Lord.
