The problems seem overwhelming—racism, terrorism, family breakdowns, abortion, same-sex marriage, pornography, prostitution, sex trafficking, modern-day slavery, illegal immigration, and on and on and on. It seems as if things are spinning out of control. It’s easy to think we are facing a dire situation Christians have never before encountered.
But our world is not that different from the world of the very first Christians. They faced many of the same issues we are dealing with today. In some ways, they had it worse than we do because they were a much smaller, marginalized movement just getting started. And yet they found strength to endure and the insight they needed to thrive from various resources—including letters from their leader.
Peter explained how displaced and disaffected Christians could handle the pressure and persecution present in the latter part of the first century. And we can embrace the opportunity to learn how to thrive in our modern world by learning from Peter and applying his spiritual wisdom to our lives.]]>
