1 Peter 1:3–9

[3] Blessed be The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His Great Mercy, He has caused us to be Born Again to a Living Hope through The Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, [4] to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in Heaven for you, [5] who by God’s power are being guarded through Faith for a Salvation ready to be revealed in The Last Time. [6] In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, [7] so that the tested genuineness of your Faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at The Revelation of Jesus The Messiah. [8] Though you have not seen Him, you love him. Though you do not now see Him, you believe in Him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, [9] obtaining the outcome of your Faith, The Salvation of your souls. 


1 Peter 2:18–25

[18] Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust. [19] For this is a gracious thing, when, mindful of God, one endures sorrows while suffering unjustly. [20] For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God. [21] For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. [22] He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. [23] When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. [24] He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. [25] For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. 


Suffering of God's Saints on earth always brings our Heavenly Father Glory.


We are to walk as our Redeemer walked -- forgiving as He forgave us.


1 Peter 3:13–17

[13] Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? [14] But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, [15] but in your hearts honor Messiah the Lord as Holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for The Hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, [16] having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in The Messiah may be put to shame. [17] For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God’s will, than for doing evil. 

1 Peter 3:18

[18] For The Messiah also suffered once for sins, The Righteous for The Unrighteous, that He might bring us to God our Father, being put to death in The Flesh but made alive in The Spirit.


1 Peter 4:1–3

[1] Since therefore The Messiah suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, [2] so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for The Will of God. [3] For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry. 


1 Peter 4:7–11

[7] The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. [8] Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. [9] Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. [10] As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied Grace: [11] whoever speaks, as one who speaks Oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by The Strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 


1 Peter 4:12–16

[12] Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. [13] But rejoice insofar as you share Messiah's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when His Glory is revealed. [14] If you are insulted for the name of The Messiah, you are blessed, because The Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you. [15] But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. [16] Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. 


1 Peter 5:6–11

[6] Humble yourselves, therefore, under The Mighty Hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, [7] casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. [8] Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary The Devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. [9] Resist him, firm in your Faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout The World. [10] And after you have suffered a little while, The God of All Grace, who has called you to His Eternal Glory in Yeshua The Messiah, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. [11] To Him be The Dominion forever and ever. Amen.
