Throughout the book of 1 Peter we have been learning what it means to suffer righteously as Christ-followers. In 4:12, Peter wrote, “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.” And now, as he is wrapping up this letter, he pastorally warns his recipients of a specific cause of such trial, the devil.
Peter exhorts his readers to not be numb to the reality that Christ-followers have a real adversary who seeks to destroy all that God desires. Through Peter’s encouragement, hopefully we can be more prepared as a church to withstand the attacks of our enemy and continue to live uncommon lives for the glory of God.
