This Epistle is written to the Christian Community of Asia Minor. It is not meant for any one individual, but is meant as an encouragement to all the Believers in Christ who were facing some kind of challenge in their daily living. These disciples of Christ faced the daunting task of living in the midst of the 'cult of Rome'. Rome was deified. Caesar was a god. The culture demanded complete loyalty to Rome! To live holy to the Lord meant difficult choices had to be made that would leave these Believers ostricized and segregated from so much of the culture around them and so many of the people they knew. But Peter writes to these brothers and sisters to encourage them as to the hope they have in Christ, the inheritance that awaits them, and the responsibility they had to entrust themselves to the greater power and judgment of God in living as examples of Jesus Christ. They did not have to do this alone though. And so all throughout this Epistle Peter writes in the plural. They are not alone, but they have each other. And here in chapter 5 Peter adds they also have shepherds who should be helping them to overcome their daily obstacles in living for Christ. Therefore, he gives these undershepherds of the 'Arch'-shepherd an imperative to care for, guide, rule, and oversee His people as they journey through this difficult time. How are we to react to persecution from the government or government officials? How do we respond to difficulties in the work place? How do we navigate a culture of peace in our marriages? The answer to all these questions is: We must taste the grace of God, be deeply moved by our redemption, breathe in His grace and breathe it out upon others, and use the blessing and gift of Elders to help us along the way.
