God’s word continues to illuminate the reality of the life that we have in Christ Jesus. As we sit under the preaching, our minds are transformed, and God sanctifies us by His word and His spirit. God has been faithful to His church for the past 2,000 years and He will continue to do so as He ministers to us; His people. We can bring our cares and concerns and look together to the one who provides all that we need for life and godliness through the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sometimes it seems that God is speaking truth into our lives at the perfect time. This is not coincidence. This is a sign of God’s perfect providence. Our spiritual forefathers have stated that God governs all of His creatures and their actions through his works of Providence. They came to hold this belief from books like 1 Peter. In this series through 1 Peter, we will see the deep love and control of God over our lives, how He is weaving us into His great plan. Peter wrote this book to show that by seeing God’s awesome power and control we would entrust ourselves to His care, standing firm in the faith we have in Jesus, our rock and cornerstone.
