Peter bursts out in praise for what God has done. What has he done?!? He’s brought new life to individuals through Lord Jesus Christ. This salvation (the truth that God saves sinners) gives us hope, joy and love amid adverse circumstances.
Our salvation (and our hope, joy and love) is anchored in Jesus.
- Our hope is in the past – Jesus rose.
- Our hope is current/present – Jesus lives.
- Our hope is complete and sure – Jesus is coming.
Scripture: 1 Peter 1:3-12
