The Bible! Well, a book in the Bible. We've decided to study 1 Peter. There are many different versions of the Bible that are available. For myself, I will be studying from the Life Application Study Bible. Here's what this version tells us about Peter:
Peter, whose name Jesus changed from Simon to Peter, wrote this letter for Christians suffering for their faith, giving comfort and hope, and urging continued loyalty to Christ. The purpose of this book in the Bible is to encourage suffering Christians.
"These trials are only to test your faith....So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world." -1 Peter 1:7
Take the next week to read, study and pray that God will speak to you over the following verses: 1 Peter 1-12.
Join us on Wednesday October 26th for a more in depth discussion on 1 Peter 1-12.
We are excited to begin studying 1 Peter with you!
