Oct 24, 2010 “Glory in Suffering”

Our friend Peter is serving up a spiritual, Scriptural diet for some believers in a time and a place where there was really no room for recreational, casual Christianity.  He was writing to believers who were going into battle every day, primarily because they lived every day constantly surrounded by people and ideas that were anti-Christian.  The spiritual diet these high-performance believers needed was not the cotton candy comfort food that made them feel good.  No, Peter knew these believers who lived in challenging times needed fuel to run the race with perseverance, fuel to stand firm in the battle.
