Jesus suffered and so will his followers. The apostle Peter circles around this theme several times. He implores them to face proper, expectant suffering at the hands of their religious opponents, not to create suffering by posturing or provoking others to anger. The gospel brings its own offense. Many stumbled over Jesus. When followers of Jesus experience similar suffering, like Christ they should face it with joy knowing God uses it to purify them and build character.
