Suffering in I Peter

Christ’s sufferings led to the glorious redemption of all who will believe

1:11; 3:18; 5:1

Believers should not be surprised by suffering        


Suffering reveals who the genuine believers are     


Suffering is temporary compared to the eternal glory that awaits believers

                1:3-7; 5:10

Believers who suffer for the right reasons will be rewarded by God 

                2:20; 3:14, 17; 4:13, 19

Any unjust suffering believers experience will be avenged by God   


Believers should avoid suffering for sinful reasons


Christ’s godly response amidst His suffering is our example amidst ours

                2:21; 4:1

Suffering is an opportunity to glorify God                


Suffering is an opportunity to witness for Christ    


Believers aren’t alone in their suffering; other Christians worldwide understand
