We are born again to a living hope — what we are saved into is more substantial and significant than what we are saved out of.

1 Peter 1v1-2 • September 6, 2020 • Bert Alcorn
The Christian world has scattered throughout the Roman Empire, citizenship and culture are huge questions and Peter writes a letter to answer questions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus in a foreign land. So much of our identity is highlighted in Peter’s language to open this letter. With his words, we can easily step into the role of the recipients of this letter. Who is God, what has he done, who am I, and how then should I live will be a framework for understanding Peter’s writing.
