Since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, strengthen yourselves in the same way, with the same mind (think like Jesus thought), because He who suffered in the flesh, has brought sin to an end, that He no longer should live the rest of His time in the flesh according to the desires of man, but according to the will of God. We may have done enough in our past to have stirred up the actions of the Gentiles, when we lived in licentiousness (without legal or moral restraints), desires, excess of wine, revellings (carousing), drinking parties, and abominable idolatries, so they think it's strange that you don't hurry along with them to the same extremes and they speak evil of you for it. They'll have to explain to God, who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

For this reason the Gospel was also preached to those who are dead (not reborn in Christ), that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. But the end of all things is near, so be sober (responsible), and guard yourself with prayer. And above all things, have fervent (marked by great warmth and feeling) charity (love) among yourselves, because ...

Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

Use hospitality to one another without complaining, and don't stop serving one another just because everyone has received the gift, but minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the diverse Grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak the messages of God, if any man minister, let him do it from the ability that God gives, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

The Mind of Christ Bible Study Warning
Have the Mind of Christ Bible Verse Gift

Beloved, don't think it unusual concerning the fiery trial that will test you, as if some strange thing has happened to you, but rejoice, since you are partakers of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may be glad also, with exceeding joy. If you're criticized for the name of Christ, be happy, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part (your pursuers) Christ is spoken evil of, but on your part, Christ is glorified.

May none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or a busybody (meddler) in other people's matters, but if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him glorify God because of this.

Matthew 5:11-12

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God, and if it begins with us, what will become of those who don't obey the Gospel of God? And if the righteous are barely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner end up? So let them that suffer according to the will of God, trust the keeping of their souls to Him in doing good, as unto a faithful Creator.

Peter gives some very good advice, and it all goes back to thinking like Jesus thought. When you're in those strange fiery trials that Peter spoke of, or any situation for that matter, don't forget WWJD. How would you like it on judgment day, if God brings up one of your trials to judge and Jesus (your attorney) comes up next to you and puts His hand on your shoulder, looks at God and says, That's what I would've done. Oh my! Case dismissed!
