1 PETER | Marginal: Suffering (pt. 1) | March 6, 2016

Peter moves into the final portion of his first letter by directing his attention to the current and future suffering facing believers.  Peter challenges those who follow the teachings of Jesus to take a different view of suffering than what would be typical.  He encourages christians to view suffering as a gift.  A gift which has the potential to refine the character of a disciple and reveal a depth of love for Christ found only through suffering.
