1 Peter 5:1–14

This is the homestretch. Peter closes his letter with some final exhortations to both leaders and members of the recipient churches. Peter pulls no punches, reminding them that they are in a war zone that goes back to the Garden of Genesis, maybe even prior. Their vision should be set on the One, but there are forces that want them to look elsewhere, even a simple glance could be catastrophic—a devouring. But, ultimately, it is on the suffering, glory-crowned, grace-abounding Christ who shows us where to take our stand—where we must stand firm. So, dig deep, finish strong, and remember you are neither alone on earth nor in the heavenlies.
