After encouraging his readers to endure persecution and remain Holy, Peter now turns his focus to Christ. In verse 18, he says, “Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.” Through his death he brings forgiveness of sin. Through our baptism, we identify with Christ as His follower, and through His resurrection, we conquer death and celebrate eternal life with Christ forever! When you feel overwhelmed, just remember what Christ accomplished for you!
