1 Peter 4:7–19
Jump to Presentation Slides

This is it. Peter says, the end is near. In the meantime, be generous. Love each other. Develop your talents. Don’t be surprised when you’re treated no better than Christ was, in fact rejoice that you can share in His suffering. The actual time of the end seems far less relevant to Peter when we look closely at the language. His true focus is encouraging his hearers to live obediently in light of the end. Imagine for a second; we who follow Christ and look forward to his return are uncomfortable with the results of our own misdeeds, how much more the judgement of others who have scorned God’s mercy. For this reason, Peter’s message carries an enduring urgency that should never be ignored.
