Have you ever watched a movie or read a book that was entirely predictable?
You know what was going to happen before it ever happened? Maybe you know someone so well that you know what they are going to say before they ever say it? Chapter 4 in 1 Peter is just like that!
If ever there was a message you would expect to get from the Bible, 1 Peter 3 is it. Peter says some predictable things: STOP SINNING and START SERVING. No one would be surprised to read that in the Bible, or to hear it at church. While this seems to be less than profound, the reasons he give for doing these things are deep and challenging to our lives. In fact, chapter 4 is filled with things to remember that will help in both of these areas.
