1 Peter 4:12-16 "Expect Trials"
When Peter wrote this letter Christians were experiencing a great deal of persecution.. He lets them know that should not surprise them when they faced all types of trials for being a Christian. This world hates Christians, because the world is Satan's domain. He is the prince and power of the air. Satan wants nothing more than to destroy Christians. So the world leader as a whole, stands against Christ. In that world, Peter says praise God that you suffer as a follower of Christ. Be proud to wear His name. So today I encourage you to be proud to take the name of Christ with you.
