…but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. 1 Peter 4:13

To keep the context, the entire thought should be considered –

“Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”

In contrast to thinking it strange for a believer to face fiery trials, Peter says that they are to “rejoice.” To think something strange is to indicate a lack of understanding why something is occurring.Read the rest

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 1 Peter 4:10

Peter now gives a reasonable explanation for the courteous behavior he just exhorted his reader to display by saying, “As each one has received a gift.” What gift has been given has been left indeterminate by Peter.Read the rest

Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. 1 Peter 4:9

The word “Be” is inserted here in order to tie it to the previous clause, as it rightly belongs. Peter had just said that we should have fervent love for one another. Using the same thought, he continues the idea with “be hospitable to one another.” It is an adjective used by Paul in 1 Timothy 3:2 and Titus 1:8.Read the rest
