1 Peter 1 - Christ Our Living Hope
Peter’s first letter is called a general epistle as it’s not written to any one church or person. It’s written to the saints living in the Northern part of Asia Minor (modern Turkey). Peter’s readers were facing persecution for their faith. Because of its focus on suffering, 1 Peter is often referred to as the “Job” of the New Testament. Peter encourages these readers and us to not focus on the trials that we currently face but to look at what God has done to secure our salvation and the living hope that we have to look forward to. Which includes an inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled, and will not fade away.
