    1 Peter encourages a group of harassed Christians to "stand firm" in their faith by anchoring a Christian's life in the life of Jesus. Repeatedly throughout the letter, and especially in 1 Peter 4:12-19, he identifies suffering in the name of Christ as normal for his followers, and that to suffer for doing good is to walk the same path to resurrection, glory, and eternal life. Peter encourages Christians today to orient their notion of "success" to be like Jesus, which is to suffer like Jesus.
