1 Peter

Letter saying that those who "were not a people now are God's people" and are to follow in Christ's steps.

Christ gave an example for others
to follow in his steps

1 Peter is a letter ascribed to Peter and sent to Christians living in Asia Minor. The letter rejoices that Christians have received an imperishable inheritance in heaven, although they have to suffer for a while on earth (1). The author calls Christians to be holy as God is holy, for they are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people (2). Christians have an example of suffering for what is right in Jesus, and they are called to "follow in his steps" (2:21). Christians must not be surprised at the fiery ordeal they face, but should resist the devil and cast their cares upon God (4-5).

1 Pet 1:3-9 - A living hope
