Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Peter 4:2

_ _ That he, etc. — “That he (the believer, who has once for all obtained cessation from sin by suffering, in the person of Christ, namely, in virtue of his union with the crucified Christ) should no longer live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God” as his rule. “Rest of his time in the flesh” (the Greek has the preposition “in” here, not in 1 Peter 4:1 as to Christ) proves that the reference is here not to Christ, but to the believer, whose remaining time for glorifying God is short (1 Peter 4:3). “Live” in the truest sense, for heretofore he was dead. Not as Alford, “Arm yourselves ... with a view no longer to live the rest of your time.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Peter 4:1-3.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

That ye may no longer live in the flesh — Even in this mortal body. To the desires of men — Either your own or those of others. These are various; but the will of God is one.

1 Peter 4:2

That he no longer should live the (a) rest of [his] time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
