The Book of 1 Peter in the Bible offers a timeless message of hope and encouragement to believers facing adversity and trials. Peter reminds us of our living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the inheritance that awaits us in heaven. He urges believers to live holy lives, to love one another earnestly, and to submit to earthly authorities while ultimately recognizing God's authority above all. 1 Peter serves as a profound reminder that our faith is refined through trials, and as we endure with steadfastness, we can experience the grace and peace that come from our relationship with Christ. In this preaching series, Called to Follow, we'll further examine our call to live as strangers and exiles in this world, with our eyes fixed on the eternal glory that awaits us.
