"Fear God, honour the King." 1 Peter 2:17 The words quoted above form part of the Apostle Peter's exhortation to his readers that, by their good deeds, they should be witnesses for Christ before a watching and sometimes even hostile world. In such a world, Christians were (and are) misunderstood and misrepresented. Peter's deep concern was that, as far as it depended on believers, the grounds for such misunderstanding and misrepresentation be removed. As he puts it in 1 Peter 2:15: "It is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people."
