After arching together 1st Peter 4:1-6 I believe that the central idea of these verses is to be found in two places. Verses 1 & 2 serve as one half of the central idea, and verses 3 to 6 serve as the other half. A summary of verses 1 & 2 might sound like this: As a follower of Christ arm yourself with the same mind, purpose, attitude, or way of thinking as was the mind of Christ at His crucifixion because if you do you will count yourself dead to sin, and set free from it, so as to live for what pleases God! Then, verses 3-6 might be summed as sounding like this: For the time to live in sin is done, for the Gospel was preached and you received it, so that you might live in the Spirit of God! Bringing both halves together we find the central theme of these verses to be summed up like this: Be Cross-centered in your thinking, and you will find yourself Cross-centered in your living, free from the power of sin, and pleasing God-living in the Spirit of God, and bearing the fruit of the Gospel! What we read here in these verses is paralleled quite well by the Apostle Paul in Romans 6. There we read: " We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God . So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus ." The Bible makes clear that there is something very real and practical about the Cross of Christ, the altar of our redemption. Christ died for our sins that we might die to our sins, and live in the power of God's Spirit bearing the fruit of the Gospel in a life of obedience to God's revealed will! This was the Apostle Peter's encouragement to those who were struggling to stand firm in the 'grace of God' (5:12), who were prone to selfish, undisciplined reactions to the persecutions and sufferings they were enduring, who were being tempted to return to their former way of living, and who were struggling to live for the will of God.
