The End is Near

Season 16: Hope & Encouragement

Scripture: 1 Peter 4:1-11


On Good Friday, we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. He told His disciples that this time of suffering was ahead, and Jesus had to go to Jerusalem. However, suffering is not a concept we want to embrace or accept in this life. 

Since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude.

- 1 Peter 4:1 

Suffering has different faces in each of our lives. Peter addresses issues of pain, suffering, and persecution for his readers. He wants them to know that this will become more severe for believers living under the rule of Emperor Nero, but Peter offers hope and encouragement. 

The end of all things is near. We must be alert and disciplined in our prayers. Peter provides two examples of using our spiritual gifts. First, we must share the Word of God. His Word is important and necessary for salvation and understanding God’s power and authority in our lives. We are also called to serve others and trust the Lord will provide the strength we need. 

Seek to glorify God every day. Serve the Lord and others faithfully and continue to walk with God. AMEN.
