Steve Gregg discusses 1 Peter 4:12-5:14, emphasizing the idea that Christians will inevitably suffer as they fight back against ruling political spheres. Gregg also notes that suffering is a crucial aspect of Christianity, as Christ suffered to save others. He points out that judgment will begin with the house of God and urges Christians to commit their souls to God and not be ashamed of suffering. Finally, Gregg stresses the importance of selecting church leaders for their genuine eagerness to serve, rather than their desire for dishonest gain.
