Do you need encouragement to help you in your situation? Do you need some assurance that God knows about your trouble and trials and has a purpose and plan in them? Have you walked to the edge and wondered if there is a future?
Part 1 is the purpose of 1 Peter and a look at where we have to start if we are going to live with hope in this messed up world.
God wants to change our perspective on pain and suffering. He wants to reorient our minds and hearts around our identity in Christ. This will change how you look at what you are going through.
