Intro to 1 Peter
Scripture References: 1 Peter 1:1-12
From Series: "Exiles"
The apostle Peter speaks of followers of Jesus as “exiles”—people who are now living apart from their true home. Peter wrote to first century Christians who were suffering and being persecuted for their faith in Jesus. His letter offers hope to suffering and persecuted Christians today. He teaches us that suffering can purify our faith, reminding us of our true hope and home with Jesus, and give us opportunities to bear witness to the goodness of God in a hostile world.
