1 Peter 1:12; 1 Peter 1:15; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 Peter 4:1; 1 Peter 4:4; 1 Peter 5:9-10
It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven -things into which angels long to look.
but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior;
and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.
Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you;
But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
