1 Peter 5:9 Parallel

strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said.
For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
If you are not disciplined--and everyone undergoes discipline--then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
