1 Peter is written to suffering Christians, reminding them that there is hope in their suffering. Peter reminds his readers that they are partakers in the hope of the Gospel, chosen by God to share His good news. As we go through the book of 1 Peter, we can be reminded of the hope that comes with Jesus's victory and His goodness, even in the midst of suffering.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith ... (1 Peter 5:8-9)
Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh... but for the will of God.
Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary blessing... (1 Peter 3:8-9)
