1 Peter 5
Peter exhorts the elders to serve as examples to their flocks and encourages all his readers to pursue a lifestyle of humility and hope. He reminds his readers that their brethren throughout the world were also undergoing the same kind of sufferings (5:9), and that they were not in a unique situation. Peter wanted to encourage them to submit to God and His loving purposes for their lives and to draw on His strength in the present while maintaining a clear hope of their heavenly future. Thus, the more they realize that they are strangers and aliens in the world, and that their true destiny and home is eternal glory in the presence of the Lord, the better they will be able to stand fast in the true grace of God (5:12).
READING of 1 PETER 5
Lord, by Your grace may I clothe myself with humility toward others, and humble myself under Your mighty hand, that You may exalt me at the proper time.
