Distracted Christians are not dangerous. They’re too busy with unimportant things to be doing what matters most. If we’re honest, don’t we all fit that description more often than we’d like to admit? Between our phones, email, social media, and busy schedules it’s become more and more challenging to actually give our time and attention to the things that matter most.

Suffering isn’t a matter of if, but when. We will suffer. It’s just a reality in this life. For the Christian, persecution is the same way. If Christ is the king of our heart, despite all the good we may contribute to the world, we will endure persecution (v.15). If the world hated Jesus but loves us, there’s a problem. If we are never persecuted then chances are, we are either isolating ourselves from the world (which isn’t good) or we are so much like the world that we aren’t different enough to warrant persecuting (this isn’t good either).

Whether you have been to see the Boston Symphony Orchestra or not, most people can sense when instruments are out of tune or when they are playing the wrong notes during a concert. It is even more accentuated when you have a duet, or a quartet ensemble. I remember my days playing the trumpet in High School; and as a player, you are the first one aware when you miss a note! The harmony is shattered.

Scholar RM Mayner suggests, “1 Peter was written to Christians who were experiencing various forms of persecution, men and women whose stand for Jesus Christ made them aliens and strangers in the midst of a pagan society. Peter exhorted these Christians to steadfast endurance and exemplary behavior.”
