"Vindication in the Margins" 1 Peter 3:18-3:22 (Life in the Margins)

As Peter continues exploring the Christian life of suffering, he attempts to answer the question, "Is Suffering Worth It?" By weaving together 3 very different yet related stories, his answer is a resounding yes. By looking to Jesus on the cross, Noah and the ark, and a believer's experience of baptism, Peter explains why it is better to suffer for doing good and re-frames our daily struggle through gospel eyes. So often our lens is too short and our scorecard is too material.
