In this final chapter of Peter's letter, we are now described as God's flock, God's people, who are precious and close with God. It is a personal and reassuring way of describing those who belong to God. Because of who we are now, Peter tells us how we should be living. We should care for one another, elders should look after God's people, because they are precious to God, and he cares for them. We are all to be humble under God, serving other people, knowing that he will lift us out of our suffering and give us a crown of glory. We can cast all our anxieties on God, because he cares.
