Century 1 Suffering vs. Century 21 Prosperity

I'm gonna make a quiet return to blogging. To test the waters of my readership, I'd like some help from you, dear reader. Can you do me a hermeneutical favor, and suggest the implications of the New Testament being written mainly to believers suffering persecution, being literally murdered for the sake of Christ, versus how we read it today and attempt to apply it to our lives as we live in America with the comforts of the top 5% of wealth in the world?

I don't have an answer so I need your help here.
