Suffering for Doing Good – 1 Peter 3:8 – 4:7

Suffering for Doing Good – 1 Peter 3:8 – 4:7

Peter wants us to live holy lives, even if there’s the threat of suffering for those who do so. He desires that if we do suffer, we suffer for doing good not evil. Peter motivates us to holy living through quoting the Old Testament, pointing to Jesus Christ’s example and teaching about hindered prayers. He also describes what holy living looks like in 1 Peter 3:8 – 4:7
