Jesus said, “The Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister.” He also said to his disciples, “So send I you.” He had a ministry and so do we as Christians.
In 1 Peter 3:18-22 Peter speaks of Jesus’ ministry. First, he spoke of the death of Christ. He was the “Just One” who was treated unjustly. Why? That he might die for the unjust and bring them to God he died as a substitute for us (2:24). Peter tells us that Jesus suffered for well-doing and not because of any sins he committed (2:22).
