The Hope of GOD’s Salvation

July 15, 2018

As we noted last week, Peter was inspired by GOD to write this letter to real people, who were living through real persecution, in real cities, scattered throughout the Roman Empire. I say that because a lot of people discount or disregard the Word of GOD’s sufficiency when life gets difficult for them. I remember a man that had sat in my office, he had been diagnosed with a terminal disease; I offered him counsel from GOD’s Word & he very bluntly replied, “I don’t need Bible verses; I need real help, a real cure, real companionship.” I proceeded to tell the man, who is now dead, that the Word of GOD is real help for real people in real life; but, we must believe it, receive it, & trust in it.
