Bread of Life Fellowship
To encourage believers to endure suffering for righteousness' sake on account of their faith in Christ, in chapter 3-18-22 of his first letter, Peter gives us a most beautiful description of the redemptive work of Christ on our behalf as a motivation. Through His suffering and death, Christ conquered sin in order to bring us to God -v18-- secondly, we saw last time that upon His death on the cross, He went in the spirit to declare a victory sermon over fallen angels whose spirits were bound in prison awaiting the final judgment. Through His death, Christ -disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them..- -Col 2-15-- and through faith in Christ, we overcome Satan's temptation to fear and despair in our time of suffering.
