Beginning in 1 Peter 2:11, the focus changes from the one’s creed to one’s conduct. Previously, Peter has dealt with doctrinal truths for scattered and suffering believers — salvation, obedience, holiness, and love. Now, he begins to practically demonstrate how those truths should play out as one lives and works in a hostile and pagan society. First Peter 2:11-17, begins with a practical application of holiness. Believers must live as aliens and strangers in a pagan culture. Peter then continues with a practical application of obedience. Believers must live in obedience to a pagan government.
