"Armed for the Margins" 1 Peter 4:1-11 (Life in the Margins)

In order to live a life of suffering for Jesus in margins, Peter calls all believers to arms. However, instead of arming ourselves with the weapons of the world, Peter calls the Christ follower to be armed with the mindset of Jesus. Following Jesus' lead, this results in a commitment to the Father's will in terms of our passions, pressures, and priorities. The single-minded focus of Jesus serves as our guide through suffering and every uncertain situation.
