Why do God’s people – even when living in good relationship with each other and with God – sometimes find themselves suffering and going through a lot of pain?

Here Peter reminds us that we should expect it and it may not be because of anything we have done wrong. But he also speaks about the hope that God will comfort us, lift us up and restore us.

And as we journey together, we can have the privilege of helping others experience this comfort as well.
