1 Peter 5:14—“Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to you all who are in Christ.”
Note 2 on in Christ says: “Peter stressed the fact that the believers are in Christ (3:16; 5:10). It is of God and through our faith and baptism that we are in Christ ( 1 Cor. 1:30; John 3:5; Gal. 3:27; Rom. 6:3). This results in an organic union with the Triune God (Matt. 28:19) and makes us one spirit with the Lord (1 Cor. 6:17).”
Cross-reference “c” on in Christ directs us to these related verses:
1 Peter 5:10—“But the God of all grace, He who has called you into His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself perfect, establish, strengthen, and ground you.”
1 Peter 3:16—“Yet with meekness and fear, having a good conscience, so that in the matter in which you are spoken against, those who revile your good manner of life in Christ may be put to shame.”
