  2. Exposition

What is the function of “in order that”?

1 Peter 4:11 (ESV)

11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

This phrase catches the purpose of fulfilling the preceding string of imperatives: that God be glorified.
