What does it look like to live in a world that is not our home? What does it mean to suffer well? How do we fix our hope now on the future return of Jesus? How do we live prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within us? In the epistles we now know as 1 & 2 Peter, the apostle Peter writes to the elect exiles in the first century who were facing difficult persecution and severe suffering. He calls the believers then and now to look to Jesus, the one who endured suffering before us, who has promised to return, and who alone is our living hope!
