First Peter is preeminently a letter of hope, of second and third chances. In the midst of suffering and pain that would attempt to derail us, Peter provides an epistle of triumphant faith. Although his readers were geographically scattered his purpose was clear: to stimulate their faith, to assure them of the reliability of God’s word, and to encourage them to stand fast in God’s grace.
Peter’s assurance to those who belong to Christ is still a great encouragement today. In volume one of this series, Pastor Lee reminds Christians of our heavenly citizenship and calls listeners to continue growing in faith and hope in Christ through trials.
