It is describing our inheritance, incorruptible and undefiled which is reserved in Heaven for us (1 Peter 1:4-5); it is the final consequence of the salvation of our ‘inner lives’ (1 Peter 1:9); it is the culmination of the glories that will follow the sufferings of Christ (1 Peter 1:11); it is the consequence of the gracious and abundant outpouring of His love which is to be brought to us at the revelation of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:13); it results from the glory given to Jesus Christ at His resurrection (1 Peter 1:21), the glory which He had had with the Father before the world was (John 17:5); it is the glorious hope of the saints of God (1 Peter 1:21; 1 Peter 3:15); it is one reason why, at the revelation of the glory of Christ, we will rejoice with exceeding joy (1 Peter 4:13), not only because He has received His glory, but because He has graciously dispensed it upon us. Or St. Peter may use the word ολιγον, here rendered a while, and which means a little, in respect of the degree as well as of the duration of suffering; for, compared with the joys of heaven, the sufferings of this life are light as well as momentary, 2 Corinthians 4:17. 1 Peter 4.
