Text: I Peter 1:1-3
#1 in I Peter Series
The book of I Peter preaches what the Gospel alone can produce in a human soul: a life-giving and life-transforming hope. A “living hope” so alive that life circumstances – and even death itself – cannot kill it. The beacon of our eternal hope shines before us, and its light not only guides our way, but also challenges us in the way we see ourselves, how we view the world, and in how we live our lives at every level of human interaction on this side of eternity.
Before we dive in, we’ll set the context for the rest of the book by looking at the “envelope” of Peter’s letter. We will also look at how each member of the Trinity works together for our salvation, with the hope that our grace and peace would be multiplied to us. We conclude with practically applying this salvation – and the hope that it produces – to our lives. I Peter 1:1-3
