Having seen what Christian conduct ought to look like, this passage is the beginning of a section which deals with Christian suffering. We begin with the Christian response to suffering. vv. 13-14b Encouragement is given to suffering Christians: you will be blessed! We have seen in the preceding verses that God delights in those who do good, those who are righteous. Peter now encourages believers to keep being zealous for what is good even in the midst of suffering, since there is assurance that God is for the righteous and will surely bless them. vv. 14c-17 Here Peter instructs Christians to respond appropriately to those who oppose them: (i) Don't fear them (ii) Don't be troubled by them and their actions against you (iii) Honor Christ the Lord as holy He goes on to explain that Christians should always be prepared to give a response to anyone who questions the reasons for their faith. As they do this, they ought to do it with gentleness and respect. Why? In order for their good behavior to put to shame those who try to revile and slander them. This is consistent with what we have seen so far in this letter: the distinctiveness of Christians and appropriate conduct which leads to glory being brought to God. v17 reinforces the idea of suffering even for doing good. Suffering is to be expected in the Christian life.
