Midweek Focus Bible Study: This week's passage - 1 Peter Introduction Without a doubt, Peter is the best known among Jesus’ original band of disciples. Bold, brash, impetuous, impulsive Peter; quick to speak, strongly opinionated, well-meaning, and fiercely loyal . . . yet altogether human and given to emotional extremes. We cannot help but smile at him, especially as we see ourselves mirrored in his actions and words. As we get better acquainted with the man himself and the first letter he wrote, we shall not only become more familiar with him; we will learn the overall theme of the letter he wrote to the Christians who were scattered and living as aliens in a hostile and hateful world.

Midweek Focus Bible Study: This week's passage - 1 Peter 1:1-12 Life has its mysteries. Few people, if any, are able to explain most of them. One great mystery has to do with suffering. Why is there so much of it? Who can make sense of it, especially the suffering of the godly, while so many of the ungodly seem to live out their years virtually free of struggle? God’s Word, known for its timeless wisdom, does not dodge the subject. On numerous occasions, the issue of suffering resurfaces in Scripture. The first letter Peter wrote, in fact, addresses various aspects of this knotty problem none can escape, not even those who walk closely with the Lord. Like the patriarch Job, believers have been led through this dark and mysterious valley, often without understanding why. Let’s embrace a perspective that is rare among sufferers: joy in the midst of pain.

Midweek Focus Bible Study: This week's passage - 1 Peter 1:13-21 Peter began his letter emphasizing hope. Hope to go on in spite of suffering. Hope that grows stronger as we focus on the ultimate glory and relief we’ll enjoy in our heavenly home. Peter emphasized holiness — remaining pure even though the world around us is morally and ethically polluted. Hope and holiness belong together, for “everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He [Christ] is pure” (1 John 3:3). Let’s pay close attention to God’s counsel on this all-important subject. There are few things more deserving of our attention than staying clean in a corrupt society.
