We’ve entitled our series through 1 Peter, “Chosen Sojourners”, taking that line of thought from Wayne Grudem who calls this a two-word sermon that sums up the entire letter. We are a chosen people, called to eternal life with Christ, but temporarily called to live in a foreign land filled with suffering and persecution. How then are we to do so? Peter’s letter tells us. We are to do so with hope, trust, joy, and good works, testifying to the glory and grace of Jesus Christ in the gospel.
Perhaps 1 Peter 4:19 provides the best summary verse of the book, “Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good (ESV).”
