Today, as in Peter’s day, believers live in a world that is hostile towards them. Peter writes this epistle to exhort and encourage scattered, suffering, and slandered believers to stand for Christ amidst paganism and godlessness. Already, he has addressed the behavior of believers towards suffering. Now, in 1 Peter 4:1-6, Peter addresses three specific responsibilities believers must maintain in a hostile world.
