  • Our inheritance is reserved in Heaven (continued):
    • I Peter 1:1-4
      • I Peter 1:1 – Compare I Peter 2:11 regarding “aliens.” He could be referring to their state on earth as exiles or to their spiritual state:  this earth is not our home.
    • Romans 8:35-39
    • Daniel 4:24-27
    • Daniel 6:10
    • Daniel 9:1-3
    • Jeremiah 29:4-14
    • Colossians 3:1-4
    • I Peter 5:10-11
  • I Peter 4:13
    • I Peter 4:12-19
      • I Peter 4:12 – Do not be surprised at fiery ordeals!
      • I Peter 4:13 – Christ suffered, now it is our turn.
      • I Peter 4:14 – We are blessed when we are reviled.
      • I Peter 4:15 – Do not sin and suffer because of that.
      • I Peter 4:18 – See II Peter 1:11. “Scarcely” here does not mean that it is hard for God to save the righteous.  If Christians have difficulty attaining salvation, how much more difficult will it be for the unrighteous?
    • When we suffer, remember the benefits.
      • Heaven! – I Peter 4:13; 1:7-9; Philippians 1:21-24
      • Fellowship! – Romans 8:17; II Corinthians 1:5; Philippians 3:10; Matthew 5:10-12; Acts 5:40-42
      • Builds character! – Romans 1:1-4
