From Series: "Grace and Hope"
As Peter writes this letter to the Christians scattered throughout Asia Minor, they are already encountering some measure of persecution – and it appears that even more suffering is on the horizon. This letter is an encouragement to follow Christ’s example and remain faithful no matter what kind of suffering these trials produce. Throughout this short book in the New Testament, Peter urges believers to have hope and to continue trusting the Lord no matter what the circumstance.
