Living Hope - New Sermon Series
NEW SERMON SERIES
Here’s a principle we need to keep in mind: What you don’t understand, you fear. What you fear, you oppose. What you oppose, you attack. That’s where the first century Christ-followers found themselves. They were misunderstood, feared, opposed and ultimately attacked. In Rome, Christians were tortured, covered in animal skins and attacked by dogs, thrown into prison, and made into human torches. Peter sees the approaching storm and writes to say things are going to get worse before they get better. OUCH! Yet he writes to encourage the scattered believers in Asia Minor to stand fast in the grace of God in the midst of great trials. First Peter is a letter for the here-and-now. His words are postmarked today. This is a letter for disciples in 2012. This is a letter to HOPE about LIVING HOPE.
