Peter uses the language of blessing again in 3:9, where he enjoins the hearers to bless, rather than revile persons who have reviled them. He assures them that they are called to receive blessing themselves. For Peter, God is not only to be recognized but is to be praised. This is implicit in his description of the people of God, who are to bring spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God (2:5, 9) and to glorify God (4:11, 16). Peter in this letter occasionally bursts forth into expressions of praise (4:11b; 5:11).
With dignity and trust in God, they are to endure the variety of sufferings they are facing. They are to break the cycle of violence by not striking back or cursing their enemies, thus following the example of Jesus. They are, in short, embracing the grace and enabling of God to pursue peace and keep on doing good and right. As they do so, they may possibly win some nonbelievers to Christian faith. But in any and every case they are to remain faithful to the teaching and example of their Lord Jesus Christ, through whose life, death, and resurrection they are finally saved.
